I was searching and couldn’t find enough info about this, so a bit of context first.
When Grasshopper is loading, a file called
PluginLoading.txt gets created in
%appdata%\Grasshopper\ for every
.gha file being loaded, when the plugin loads successfully this file is deleted. This can be seen in the image below.
The problem arises when this process is long and you have two instances (or more) loading at the same time! You start getting those errors about “Potential Plugin Crash Protection” or you get “Access to the path %appdata%\Grasshopper\PluginLoading.txt is denied”.
To reproduce just the error message simple create this file
%appdata%\Grasshopper\PluginLoading.txt inside paste this
C:\Program Files\Rhino 6\Plug-ins\Grasshopper\Components\CurveComponents.gha then Launch Rhino and Grasshopper.
@DavidRutten is there a fix or a workaround for this? Can I opt-out of this protection? = )
