Unable to Load a plugin


I’m currently unable to load a plugin across many of my files. I usually have issues loading it but closing and reopening the file a few times often fixes it, however, this time I seem unable to load the plug in entirely. Perhaps this is an issue with my maxwell plugin instead, but I thought i’d ask here first as last time i contacted maxwell, i was waiting a very long time…

I’m using Rhino 5 64-bit, Windows 10

The error code i’m receiving is the following upon opening Rhino:

Loading V-Ray for Rhino, version 3.60.03 adv ( Jul 3 2018 )
Loading Rhino Render, version 1.50, May 22 2017, 10:01:30

Hi Sam - that is something for Maxwell to help with, I’m afraid - but I’d make sure to get their latest V5 compatible version, and make sure your Windows is also completely up to date.
