Module window crash when running plugin

I followed the plugin tutorial but when I try to go to the Plug-Ins window, Rhino just crashes.

Any clue ?

Windows : 11
Visual Studio : 2019
Language : french
Rhino : 7.28.23058.03001
SDK : 7.28.23058.03001

What plugin? Also, run the SystemInfo command in Rhino and post the full result here.
HTH, Jakob

I meant this CPP plugin tutorial.

I tried to change the langage from French to English and the crash is gone but the plugin does not show up in the plugins list.

Edit : It’s fixed, the plugin is not loaded automatically, I needed to install it. However, the langage problem is still there, if I go back to French, I get the same crash, only when the debugger is attached.

The result of SystemInfo :

Hi @Paul_George
Hopefully one of the big programming brains will chime in here :slight_smile:

Hi @Paul_George,

What kind of crash? Are you getting an error message of some kind? If so, can you post it?

Hi @dale,

I get a null pointer exception from within Rhino source:

Exception thrown at 0x00007FFC2E0E6261 in Rhino.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x0000000000000000.

Here are the steps to reproduce the crash:

  • Install and set the langage to French
  • Run the CPP plugin sample with Debugger attached
  • Try to go in Fichier → Propriétés → Modules
