Grasshopper-Archicad Live Connection won't appear in Archicad after installation


Hey everyone,


I just installed the Grasshopper-Archicad Live Connection Tool for my Archicad Educational Version. I am running the latest Archicad Version (Version: 25, Build: 5010) on Windows 10. After successfully installing the AddOn, I was about to establish the connection between the two softwares by going to (in Archicad) File -> Interoperability -> Grasshopper Connection, while both Grasshopper and Archicad where running. And here starts the problem: The Grasshopper Connection option is not even listed in the list of interoperabilities in Archicad. I have checked, if the AddOn is properly installed in Archicad by opening the AddOn-Manager. In fact it is listed there and the box is checked as you can see in the screenshot. Am I overlooking something? I wish some of the community might help me. I appreciate every comment. Thank you.


Kindest regards



Barry Kelly

The Add-on Manager tells you where the command is located.




Not where you are expecting it.

It seems to be in your second last main menu.
