During the installation of our plug-in we will be registering the plug-in ourselves following the instructions from here: Registering Plugins on Windows
Assuming, as mentioned in other forum topics, the plug-ins built for Rhino 6 should ideally work in Rhino 7 as well.
Should we perhaps simply register the plugin for both versions if they exist on the users system?
Alternatively we could ask the user which version they want to register the plug-in, but our preferred method would be to register for both so the users don’t have to make that decision and they don’t need to run the install twice with the only difference being the registration in the registry.
Secondly, if a user has our plug-in installed in Rhino 6… then later they install Rhino 7, does Rhino do anything to copy the registered plug-ins in Rhino 6 to Rhino 7 itself? Or would the user just need to manually go in and find the RHP themselves in their newer version and register it with Rhino?
