Problems loading octopus

Hi, my first post and newbie…

i get an error message when trying to open a karamba example file that uses octopus, the error message i get relates to HelixToolkit.Wpf.dll (see attached screenshots).

snip 1

I have reinstalled this DLL as suggested here from a post in 2016

I am using Rhino 6.25.20114.5271; GH build 1.0.00027 and Octopus 0.4

The karamba file i am trying to use is here

Any ideas?


Dear Phil
Have you got any solution for this issue? I have the same problem and don’t know how to solve it.

  1. UNBLOCK the file HelixToolkit.Wpf.dll inside the octopus folder downloaded for the installation to replace it (right-click/properties/checkbox Unblock)

  2. Replace the existent file HelixToolkit.Wpf.dll for the unblocked one in the folder: C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\Grasshopper\Libraries
    To arrive at that folder from Grasshopper, go to File/Special Folders/Component Folders.

  3. Restart Rhino.

  4. If still does not work, unblock all the files, replace them and restart Rhino.
