What version of Rhino 6 does newest Vray work with?

Hi

I can’t get Vray to work with Rhino 6 I have now.

What is the magic combination to have this work?

And separately: When will the most recent Vray work with the most recent Rhino?

Thanks,

Here’s my SysInfo:

Hi Alan_Farkas,

the installer displays the minimum required version. You are running 5.7 and shouldn’t be able to install the newest V-Ray version on it, since it requires at least 6.23

as a rule of thumb, the latest Rhino will work with the latest V-Ray and vice versa.

It’s been a while, and I’m all updated. Just trying (as always) to install my Vray (vray_adv_36003_rhino_6_win_x64) into my Rhino 6 (Version 6 SR28 - 6.28.20199.17141, 7/17/2020)

I double-click the installer and click OK for everything. I restart, and go to Rhino and I get the following. It must just be me, but every single time I go to Install and use Vray it’s problematic. I stopped using it b/c it was so troublesome, but now I’d like to use it again.

Any chance you (or anyone else) can help, please?

EDIT: I’ve gotten it to install and Rhino has the plugin open, but I am not able to get the License to work now

Search windows for License, it should find Manage Chaos License Server.

Check what’s there and if you don’t find a problem, reinstall license server and restart computer.

Hello, @Alan_Farkas,

It looks like the license is currently in use. Have you by chance borrowed it for offline use?
If you click on the license list entry additional information will be displayed - the IP of the current session and the state of the license (Online use / Offline use).

If you require further assistance, pllease reach out to https://www.chaosgroup.com/support/contact

Kind regards,
Peter

Yeah, no matter what I do, it’s not available. I just tried “borrowing” it the other day just to try it.
Is there someone I can talk with live, that operates on normal California business hours?

I see. In this case, please fill in the contact form to request remote assistance.
Our support team will be able to help you out between EEST 18:00-22:00 which corresponds to PDT 08:00-12:00.

Kind regards,
Peter
