I use a lot Rhino to developp PlugIns. With the version 5 and 6 off Rhino it was possible to load plugins via the PlugInManager. With the version 7 I simply don’t have the PlugInManager. I go to :Tools->Options
and… nothing do you have any Idea how it is possible?
Hi Markus -
When you type
Options on the command line, does the dialog box appear?
Also, please run the Rhino
SystemInfo command and copy-paste here.
thank you a lot for your answer. The option’s dialog box appear.
Here I provide you the full Rhino SystemInfo

Hi Markus -
And, I suppose, there’s a Plug-Ins section on the left side? What happens when you click on that?
Apart from that:
I would think that this is the most likely culprit for any issues that you are experiencing. Is there any way that you can disable that?
The current final version is SR 10 but the SR 11 release candidate is also available.
These drivers probably could use an update.
The plugin manager user interface is implemented in the commands plugin which somehow must have gotten disabled on your system. Try dragging the commands.rhp from your installed rhino plugins directory and drop it onto rhino.
I don’t know why but updating the software worked. Thank you a lot
