This has been going on for “a while” and not all the time [one of those, yes] - I launch Rhino and the splash screen comes up but gets stuck at some stage loading plug-ins. Most of the time, I click (X) the splash screen away pretty much immediately and after a few minutes with nothing happening, I launch a new instance of Rhino. Most of the time, that one will get through loading all plug-ins and the UI appears. Trying now, that second instance also got stuck and a third one opened up.
Those times that I have tried to see what’s being loaded, the first instance of Rhino has always stopped up at loading Bongo for Rhino 6. The second launch will get stuck on some other plug-in.
I end up with a crash (in its zoological meaning) of Rhino processes but only one with visible UI:
I described 2 separate issues in my initial post - my mistake of doing so.
I take it that the fix refers to the second issue - an error showing up in RH5? That, indeed, seems to be fixed here as well.
I’m still running into the first problem, though. With Bongo enabled in the PluginManager, I most often have to kill the first launch of Rhino in the Windows Task Manager. A 2nd (or 3rd) launch goes well.
