Uninstalling Rhino 5 RHI Plug-ins


Problem

Plug-ins that use the Rhino RHI installer do not have an automatic uninstall.

Applies to

Rhino 5 plug-ins installed using the built-in RHI installer engine.

Solution

Manually remove the plug-in's folder. The plug-in may be in up to three default folder locations.

Find the AppData location (Location 1)

  1. Close all Rhino applications.
  2. Go to Windows Explorer.
  3. In the address bar type %APPDATA%.
  4. There should be a long list of folders. Go to McNeel > Rhinoceros > 5.0 > Plug-ins.
  5. Find the folder that contains the name of your plug-in and delete that folder.

Find the Common Files location (Location 2)

  1. Close all Rhino applications.
  2. Go to Windows Explorer.
  3. Go to the C:\Program Files\Common Files\McNeel\Rhinoceros\5.0\Plug-ins.
  4. Find the folder that contains the name of your plug-in and delete that folder.

Find the additional Common Files location on 64-bit systems (Location 3)

  1. Close all Rhino applications.
  2. Go to Windows Explorer.
  3. Go to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\McNeel\Rhinoceros\5.0\Plug-ins.
  4. Find the folder that contains the name of your plug-in and delete that folder.

Note: Once you restart Rhino, there may be an error at start-up, but it will be a one time message only.
