Rhino 5 taking a long time to load

Hello everyone. Wondering if someone can help please. After working fine yesterday and loading as soon as I clicked on the app, suddenly today, Rhino 5 is taking a long time to load - at least 2 minutes or more. When it does decide to open, the toolbars on the right showing access to the different layers etc. do not show which seems strange. I have all the latest Windows updates installed for Windows 10. Anyone have any suggestions as to what might be going on and how I might be able to fix it please? Many thanks, Kevyn

Hello- are you running any non-default plug-ins? Are you opening Rhino from a desktop icon or via a rhino file in Windows Explorer? Did you crash the last time you used Rhino ‘cleanly’?


Hello Pascal - thank you for the response. I am running Rhino from a desktop icon without any plug-ins. I used Rhino yesterday normally without it crashing and shut the application down as normal. Today, it is taking 3 - 4 minutes to load. I am completely baffled!

Did you ever figure out a pattern to this behavior?

I appreciate the follow-up Mr Brock, thank you. All seems to be working again now without me doing anything, but I did have to set-up my toolbars again. During the problem I checked whether the laptop was running any background updates or anything else that might have caused operations to slow down, but found nothing out of the ordinary. All a bit of a mystery.
