Rhino 6 Crashes when using Python


(Ghaflan Abadi) #1

In Rhino Python Editor, the moment I open “Rhinoscriptsyntax” tab on the left it crashes. Also, It doesn’t pop-up commands after Typing “rs.”

Any idea how I can fix this problem?

Hello - do you have an installation of Iron Python on your system other than the one installed by Rhino?

Thanks for your reply,

No I only have Iron Python that is on rhino. Do I need to install any other one?

Hello - Rhino Python misbehaves if there is another Iron Python installed on the system, I thought that might be the case here - if not, don’t install another, that will likely make things worse.

@Alain - do you have an idea what might be happening? It looks like accessing rhinoscriptsyntax causes crashes for this user…

Like Pascal says, don’t install another version.

Can you try this?
In the directory:

C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\Plug-ins\IronPython (814d908a-e25c-493d-97e9-ee3861957f49)\settings

There’s a file named version.txt. Can you try deleting it and restarting Rhino?

Thank you @Alain. I deleted “version.text” and restarted rhino. still have the same problem.

This is what I have in my apps, should I delete it?

Yes, that may fix your problem.
