Rhino 7 v-ray asset editor not opening


Just download the rhino 7 in windows parallel with v-ray. Everything is working except the asset editor. I can’t open the asset editor window no matter how many times i restart the windows and Rhino. I can still do rendering and even put the X-ray lighting. Only asset editor is not opening.

Used both rhino 6/7 with v-ray but this never happens before.

Any help?

Hi -

From the Rhino system requirements:

Not supported

  • Virtualization systems such as VMWare, Remote Desktop, and Parallels


Thanks for the reply.
Does that means I can’t use vray in parallel?
Because I can use rhino in parallel same as usual…

Hi -

It means that if you try it and it works for you, that’s fine. But if you run into any problems, there’s nothing we can do to help you.

I’m having the same issues here. Did you find a solution?

No still not working.

I’ve tried a few things but have been unsuccessful. I’ll let you know if I manage to get it working

Some progress -

I am currently using vray in rhino 7 via parallels on a Mac M2 chip. Rhino and Vray always had been working for my on my last intel chip Mac, so naively assumed I could keep working as usual on a faster computer. After loading everything on a fresh computer I also had the same issue with the asset editor not working. Ugh. Somehow we (my student and our IT) stumbled on a workaround that if you start Rhino 7 with “Run as Administrator” then the asset editor would work. May work for you? It worked through late May for me, however as of today I noticed the workaround stopped working. I am not sure if it is because I updated Rhino, V-Ray, or Parallels…or something else :sob:

So, I switched back to V-ray 6.0. It didn’t work…restarted, then it worked again :man_shrugging: Sometimes even without Running as Administrator…so not perfect, but manageable. I wish they would fix this!

If anyone finds the recipe for 100% success, please post!
