Grasshopper not found install issue.

Not applicable
Hi all. I've recently upgraded to AC22 and now having a problem with Grasshopper-archicad connection. I can't install it since it says 'Grasshopper is not found'.

Previously I used connection for AC21 on the same PC and it worked fine. I have removed the old connection plugin before trying to install the new one for AC22. I've also tried to reinstall grasshopper but the installer still doesn't see it. Everything is installed to the default location.

GA-AC connection 2.1 (22.0.3009)
AC 22 3009
Rhino 5 SR5
Grasshopper 0.9.0076
WIN 7 64bit

Grasshopper comes built in with Rhino just as you wrote, no additional download is required for GH. The AC/GH connection plug-in has to be downloaded and installed of course.

You can only have one connection plug-in installed at any time though. You have to choose a ArchiCAD version to use, and stay at it if you want the AC/GH connection to function. Make sure you uninstall other/older plugins first, only after that install the new one.

On Mac:
AC22->Rhino 5.x, AC/GH plug-in accordingly
AC23->Rhino 6, AC/GH plug-in accordingly

Hi. I need to install this remotely from command line to about 100 computers. but got this message:

mbpro:~ AddigySSH$ sudo "/Library/Addigy/ansible/packages/GrassHopper ARCHICAD 24 Connection (24.0.4018)/Grasshopper Connection" --mode text
Error: Error.
Grasshopper is not found on this computer. To use Grasshopper-ARCHICAD Live
Connection for ARCHICAD 24, you must install Grasshopper.

I didn't encounter the above error if i execute the above command locally on the computer itself:

bash-3.2# sudo "/Library/Addigy/ansible/packages/GrassHopper ARCHICAD 24 Connection (24.0.4018)/Grasshopper Connection" --mode text
This program will install Grasshopper-ARCHICAD Live Connection for ARCHICAD 24

Wow, quite a big task you have at hand there.
Did you install Rhino first?
If so, Grasshopper should be there too, it's built in to Rhino.

I can't help with remote install though, sorry.
