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?
Check the registry and remove the key of your plug-in. The re-register it by dragging. Hopefully that works
In the plugin manager, I right click the plugin and see the GUID.
I then check the registry editor here:
But there is no GUID there matching that of the plugin. Suggestions?
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.
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.
Sorry I’ve missed this. Is this still a problem?
I figured out how to change the plugin name without having to first get rid of the plugin from the registry. So not a problem, though I do still wonder why I couldn’t find the plugin in the plugin-ins list by ID nor by name…
So if you have a quick answer I’d be interested, but not worth spending time figuring on I don’t think.
