Rhino_Script won't load

Hey guys,

SO, or some reason Rhino SCript won’t load when I start up Rhino. I’ve set it to not tell me anymore, and just not load it, so I can work. But I’m slowed down by not having my go-to buttons. Any idea what I can do - and I’m hoping you don’t say uninstall :wink:

Hi Alan - yep - we are just looking at this here. We can, to some extent, reproduce the problem.
Alan, can you tell if this is in any way related to how you open Rhino? That is, if you open Rhino first from its desktop icon as opposed to finding a file in Explorer, right click and choose ‘Open with Rhino 6’?
And, do you have Rhino 7/WIP installed?


Thx or the quick reply. On a vid call at the moment, and will look into these questions as soon as I’m off.

Were I to try to open from the actual .exe (as opposed to my task bar) will it even try to open the RhinoScript since I told it to not try anymore?

I think you can fix that here: Options > Plug-ins page…


Hi guys! I have that problem as well. I can’t really check it here because that happens at my job workstation but yes, I have RhinoWIP installed and that didn’t happen before install it, however if I open RhinoWIP it works flawlessly.
Meanwhile @Alan_Farkas you can try to open a second or a third instance of Rhino6 and it will eventually get to work, then close the first Rhino6 instances that don’t work…I have been trying to find a pattern on a way to put it to work, but that doesn’t repeat all times…
Any guess guys?


This still happens when I open from the original .exe
I do have Rhino 7 WIP
Thanks @vascocrocha for the reply

@Alan_Farkas, @vascocrocha , do you have scripts that load at startup?

I think all of my scripts don’t load i’ve tried multiple from differe t toopbars. Will double chrck first thing in morning. Thanks for the help

None of my scripts buttons work.
Another pop up I get on startup, FYI:

@pascal, @Alan_Farkas, @vascocrocha
This happens from time to time (in my case usually after installing a new WiP) and is easily resolved by repairing the Rhino installation

Yep, thanks, a repair fixes it, at least sometimes, but we’re still working on a proper fix…



Windows 10 did push a .Net update today on my machine and just now the script error for Rhino 6 appeared…
Might this be connected?

I didn’t update yet

Ah, I’ve forgotten how to repair. Is it with the installer?

Yes I do. And when the system loads Rhino Script plug-in it loads all the scripts at startup and of course when not loaded Rhino Script it also doesn’t load starting scripts.
I asked the system administrator to use “repair” option when reinstall to solve the problem i believe he used repair instead of reinstall everything
