Missing folder. Rhino WIP for Windows (7.0.18268.4155, 9/25/2018)

C:\Users… \AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\7.0
Localization folder missing

edit: found it by opening New file. I repaired 7, downloaded again, uninstalled and re-installed; same.

Did you run after re-installing? Generally the localization folder is realized only on the first start. If you check right after installing the folder won’t exist. If it doesn’t exist after starting then I suppose we should poke @brian to see if this is something he is already aware of or not.

This might be the result of this bug: https://mcneel.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/RH-47525

There should be some recent log files from Rhino trying to install the localization folder in C:\Users<you>\AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\7.0\logs - they’re usually called “InstallPackagesForRhino…log”. Please send me the most recent few to me for inspection.

@Fred_C, you can copy&paste %APPDATA%\McNeel\Rhinoceros\7.0\logs in the location bar of the file explorer to get there quickly.

I uninstalled 7 again this morning, re-downloaded and installed it again, to be sure it wasn’t a bad download. I ran it and immediately chose File>New. That defaults to the Desktop where there are no template files. I dismiss (cancel) that dialog and the WIP starts normally: I can create new objects, save the file and reopen it successfully as well as open older files created with previous WIP versions. log files attached as requested.

Thanks for those logs. This is in fact https://mcneel.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/RH-47525.
