demo install win 7 issues

Postby tweezer » Thu Feb 04, 2010 7:43 am

Hi I have downloaded the demo PDF viewer plugin for rhino 4 sr7
I have installed using the installer provided.
However it dont show up in rhino in the plugins tool bar list .
Its also not in the plugins list using the tool /options/ plugins path.
I have checked in the rhino plugins folder and I cant find it there.

Simlabs has an install folder at c/program files/ simlabs.
and there is a rhino plugin file rhp in this folder.
I have attempted to manually move/copy this file to the rhino plugin folder.
sadly win 7 has denied this action even though I have admin rights.

Im not sure if this has installed incorrectly or even why win 7 wont let me copy a rhp file to its plugin folder.
Im quite new to win 7 so please excuse my noob questions
Any helpful advice is welcome
Thanks
DP

From the main menu of Rhino, select the following
Tools -> Options

The following GUI should appear.

From the lest section select Plug-ins

This will list the plugins, try to locate SimLabSoft PDF Export Plug-in, right click on it and select Load.
Setting the option to autoload should load it the next time automatically

If the plugin did not exist, you should clikc install which should open a file open dialog, select the file SimLabPluginPDFFromRhino.rhp

I didnt realise that you had to install from the plugin manager page in rhino. :lol:
