Renaming Plugin

I’m trying to change the name of my Rhinocommen VB.net plugin. I’ve changed every instance of the name in my code and in the project properties and rebuilt it. I disable the old plugin and reload Rhino. I see in the command prompt that the old plugin name is being block and check the pluginManager to see that it is not enabled.

But when I drag and drop the rhp file with the new name, the old name becomes enabled in the plugin manager. Anyone have any idea what step I might be missing? Perhaps there is some way to get rid of any trace of the old plugin?

Thanks,
Sam

Check the registry and remove the key of your plug-in. The re-register it by dragging. Hopefully that works

Hi Menno,

In the plugin manager, I right click the plugin and see the GUID.

I then check the registry editor here:
\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\McNeel\Rhinoceros\7.0\Plug-Ins\8a9c4763-190d-4afd-83c6-0fce25b77cb5

But there is no GUID there matching that of the plugin. Suggestions?

Thanks,
Sam

In my case, the following is in the registry for one of our plug-ins called “Propeller File Exporter”.

To completely remove the plug-in from the registry: while Rhino is not running delete the highlighted GUID that is a child of “Plug-Ins”, then start Rhino again.

Hi Menno,

My issue is my plugin does not show up in the Rhino7 Plug-Ins list, neither when enable nor disabled. I don’t see the GUID and after going through every plugin I don’t see one with the right name either.

Thanks,
Sam
