Rhino 6 to 7 Upgrade Questions

I’m a bit confused by the other thread talking about problems with v7 referencing v6 license. I am planning on upgrading, but wonder whether I should hold off for a while. I’m using the Cloud Zoo licensing so I have Rhino 6 installed on my primary PC, but have it installed on 2 other PC’s more as a backup if something were to happen to my primary PC. In fact, I haven’t used Rhino 6 on either of those PC’s for months. They aren’t even updated to the latest v6 service release.

Am I going to have issues with either Rhino 6 or Rhino 7 on any/all PC’s if I upgrade?

Another side question: If I upgrade to v7, do I need to uninstall the 7 WIP first?

Hi @habudg

If you are referring to the thread I started, the reference to the v6 licence was spurious, but had no impact on the operation of either R6 or R7, so isn’t a reason for holding off on the upgrade. Furthermore, the simple steps McNeel took me through (as detailed in that thread) got rid of the problem and haven’t had to be repeated.

When you install R7 it removes the WIP, if present.

Ok, thanks.

I upgraded a V6 license to V7 and use the license on two machines without any problems. With the second machine Ito go from V7 Beta to the regular V7 license I removed V7 Beta and downloaded and installed the current v7 release. Not sure that was absolutely necessary but it didn’t cause any problems.

I tried installing V7 without first uninstalling the V7 WIP and this resulted in Rhino 7 being installed in the V7 WIP directory. So I recommend doing what David did and uninstalling the WIP first. Then V7 can be found in a Rhino 7 directory just like my V6 in its Rhino 6 directory. This makes updating references to Rhino in other programs (like Visual Studio) more consistent with my prior V5 to V6 transition.

Thanks. Good to know.
