Over the last few months, we received several reports about issues with independent IronPython installations (IIPI) and Rhino. IIPI are only installations of IronPython made via MSI files, and they appear in the Control Panel like this:
It is possible to install IronPython via folder decompression, and that has no impact on Rhino.
Here are the results:
| IronPython 2.7.5 | IronPython 2.7.7
Rhinoceros 5 SR12 or SR13 | OK | OK only with no GAC* Rhinoceros WIP (31 Jan 2017) | OK | OK
*This is what the GAC options looks like, during installation:
If you need version 2.7.7, and need Rhinoceros 5 SR12 and 13 to run Python on the same system, you have a few options:
- reinstall with disabled GAC installation.
- uninstall IronPython.
- switch to IronPython version 2.7.5, both with or without GAC.
