I think @brian was attempting to fix this issue. Let me give you a link to a newer version - I assume you were getting a 7.1 build, I’m going to link a newer one with code that I believe contains the attempted fix:
Hmm, I really don’t want to uninstall 6. I wonder if I uninstall 7 and try to reinstall a previous version - such as 7.1.20314.23101 or even the current release version 7.0.20314.03001 if that might work?
OK, I uninstalled the current version and reinstalled the 7.0 release version. License dialog came up and it logged into my account and got the license. Now it runs. I will lay off the updates until I hear from @brian on this.
This is correct. All the license files live in the Rhinoceros\6.0\License Manager folder.
It’s a fix that almost went into 6.32 last night, but I decided to pull it at the last minute when I thought of a more robust fix for this and future similar problems. But this isn’t the problem Mitch is seeing.
The prosecution rests. All evidence has been deleted. There’s nothing I can do to help you understand what went wrong and fix it, unfortunately.
All the licenses are in the 6.0 folder because it lets plug-ins that work in both be licensed one time. This is true for things like Bongo, Flamingo, etc. Originally, we thought we’d move the licenses to a new folder, but it turned out to cause more problems than it fixed.
Well I will install the updates again and see if the problem happens again. If so, I will make a copy of the license folder. If not, and it was a one-time fluke, then there’s probably not much to be learned anyway. If it is a recurring problem not related to my system, I’m sure someone else here will report the same thing.
