Rhino 6 Crashing (Vray next for Rhino plugin & Windows 10 1809)


I am not a Rhino user myself but am supporting a team of users as IT support. We recently upgrade 5 team members who work with Rhino to New PC’s, we also upgrade their software from “Rhino 5” to “Rhino 6” and “V-ray 3” to “V-ray Next” plug in for Rhino.

The team are now experiencing regular crashes when using Rhino across all the new machines. The application will go “not responding” and a windows trouble shooter will pop up. Ill paste the crash dump below. It was crashing during the autosave process but have since disabled autosaves(not ideal) but are still experiencing the crashes at various other points. Have made sure all the software (rhino v6.14, windows 1809) and Nvidia drivers are up to date. If anyone has any suggestions about what else we could try it would be much appreciated

Hello - please run SystemInfo in Rhino on one of these machines and post the results here. A test is to temporarily disable VRay in Options > Plug-ins page, restart Rhino and work for a while to see how it behaves.


Hi Pascal

Here is the sys info below. Some of the team have disabled v-ray and will run with it for a bit and let me know if the stability improves. The most frequent point it is crashing at is during a render.
