Rhino 6: Settings continuously reverted back to default

Anyone got the same problem, or know a quick fix?
I’ve tried to run as admin, but the issue still persists.

this counts for all and any settings made within Rhino properties…

Hi @BragOn, for starters could you paste the results of the Rhino command _SystemInfo here? Also, do you have your Windows installation set to English, or to some other language - and what Windows version are you running?

Im running Win10 Pro

OS build 16299.192
Language is set to english, but country/region is set to Norway.

Also seems that templates are non-existing within this install… at least they don’t show on startup…

Can you try once to right-click on the Rhino icon on the desktop and “run as administrator” ? --Mitch

Just tried…
Didn’t help. The moment i “accept” the changes, everything just reverts back.

@Brag0n, could you please send me your machine name in a private message? I’d like to search our exception database to see if we have received exception messages from your machine. It could help us pinpointing the problem.

Thank you


Some part of the problem is fixed…

Although “Controlled folder access” was turned off initially,
the solution was to turn it on, then off again…
This now allows for changes to not roll back, when Rhino runs…

What issue is left, is upon closing:
this again
Which then reverts the settings anyway.

Wait, so it didn’t work after all?


The difference was that:
Before: It rolled back settings, right away, upon saying "OK" in Rhino options..
(graphically i could see the colors being rolled back to standard. Although this happened for any changed setting)

Now: It rolls back upon closing the software.
(With the error shown above… Which also existed before… I’m guessing it was a two-fold problem… and the error is the last hurdle…)

Well, since changing something in Windows Defender resulted in altered behavior could you try completely disabling Windows Defender for a while? Maybe pull the ethernet before doing so… ^.^

Ahead of you there…
Just tried. No luck this time ;S


Not sure what else to suggest at this very moment. The problem is clearly very real.

If anybody else has good ideas as what to try don’t be shy, let us know!

I bet rolling back win update would work :wink:

Don’t even go there… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I ‘m just sayin’, I had lots of issues after 1709 update including GPU NIC accelerometer fingerprint reader and audio failures not to mention icons and tiles went out and now still some apps dont work as they should…

Uninstalling Rhino 6 again has removed the error…
But then the initial issue arose again.

  • Updated to RC3 (problem still persists)

Am I really the only one having this issue?

Try to delete this . then back to run Rhino

Only the uppermost file, or all of them?

Delete these from here then back to run rhino .
