easy rendering for Rhino in Windows
Hi all ...
This is not a serious problem but it has been perplexing.
I recently bought a new laptop ... primarily for taking to meetings with clients and using it to display rhino/flamingo architectural models to clients.
It came with Windows Home 8 ... so I updated my desktop to Windows Pro 8 (up from W7).
My laptop kept telling that a critical update for 3.0 was available and each time I downloaded and apparently installed the Sept 11 version of nXt.
But my desktop was running the October 18 build.
After many strange installs on the laptop I finally copied the desktop patch install for Oct 18 and installed it on the laptop ... worked fine and now both systems agree.
This may be a problem with Windows Home 8 ... at least that's what I suspect.
Anyhow ... just a heads up if you have any strange problems with installs ...
This is actually a problem in our updater. We pulled an update because it did not work all the time. This causes the confusing message. By re-installing on you computer it set all the flags correctly so the message stopped.
So far, the only problems we have seen with Windows 8 happen before all the Windows updates are applied. Once the windows updates are on the new machines, they seem to work well.
Eric, I am migrating to a new computer with Window 8 and am struggling to complete the install of Flamingo nXt - All goes well right up to the final click, then it says there's a problem - do you have any tips?
Are you installing off the download or off the disk. We recommend installing Rhino 5 and Flamingo from the downloaded versions. That assures you have the newest installers.
