Installation issue “Unable to load VisualARQ.rhp plug-in”

If there is an error while loading VisualARQ, something similar to “Unable to load VisualARQ.rhp plug-in: initialization failed”, follow these steps to fix it:

  1. Go to the Plug-in Manager: Rhino Options _Options > Plug-ins, and from the plug-ins dropdown select the option “Plug-ins that do not ship with Rhino”.
  2. From the list of plug-ins make sure that both “Tibidabo” and “VisualARQ” are enabled, and in case they are not, enable them. Then restart Rhino.
  3. If VisualARQ was not in the list or if the first option didn’t work, click the “Install…” button, and look for the “VisualARQ.rhp” file that you will find at the following path: C:\Program Files\Rhino 6\Plug-ins\Tibidabo. Then restart Rhino.
