How to install paneling tools

(Willem Derks) #1

Hi, @rajaa

I tried to install the paneling tools for GH yet I get an installer error about compatibility.
I’ve got V5 SR14 and the package is probably not compatible with this latest SR


My version:
Version 5 SR14 64-bit
(5.14.522.8390, 22-May-17)

Hi @Willem
Sorry for late reply. I was out on vacation. Do you still have the problem?

Hi Rajaa,

No problem it’s the vacations season and we all need our breaks to reload every now and then.
I ran into the issue when I wanted to test a possible solution for a client. I since have moved to other projects and as such did not test it further.

So I just tested and I still get the error message.

My guess is you ran the V6 WIP installer AFTER installing V5, so Windows is pointing to the wrong Rhino Installer engine.

If you “Repair” the Rhino V5 installation (Control Panel > Programs and Features), that will restore the file association to the right Rhino Installer Engine and it should work fine.

Hi John,

Thanks for the suggestion, I’m working on other projects right now so I’m not keen on testing this atm as I might break something related to the WIP which I already partially use for production work.

I’ll see if I can test it when things are less time critical.
