Ok, it still was old version (1.8 ).

Now I have tried to install the new one with multiple Macs now. Install fails. I tried installing ArchiCAD 21 from fresh, then straight updated to 6013, then tried to install AC-GH-connection - but it failed.

Further updates:
I got the add on installed on an iMac. Did not want to move my Rhino license to another Mac, so I tried to copy it to my Mac Pro with Rhino license (to "add ons - local" -hierarchy). ArchiCAD now recognises it as 2.0, but still no luck with AC-GH connection: "Grasshopper is not running", though it does run just there right now, besides ArchiCAD 21 (6013). I tried with both, FIN and INT.

My Rhinoversion is 5.4.2 (Mac), and it comes with Grasshopper build 0.9.0080 (Feb 13. 2018).

Hey Guys,
I have a similar problem. I could install both of the components to AC and GH, but after I run the connection in AC21 (works properly), in Grasshopper when the windows pops up the 'Connect' button is not active, therefore I can't make the connection between the 2 programs.
Is there a solution of this?
Thank you so much!

I installed Rhino and ArchiCAD from scratch (Mac Rhino 5.5 and ArchiCAD 21 FIN and INT updated to 6013). I had to copy the grasshopper connection plug-in manually, because the GH-connection plugin installer halts with an error every time. I don't know if this is enough to install it.

Neither of my installed AC21 work (INT or FIN) with grasshopper. I am not sure when it broke. It was working alright earlier, I believe at least in the summer it was still working.

AC live connection does not see a running grasshopper. And because of that Grasshopper does not let you to choose a document which should communicate with ArchiCAD. Only one ArchiCAD and Rhino w/ Grasshopper running (+Safari).

If I am nor the only one, I would think there is a glitch somewhere in installed software, but not necessarily in my system? I am not sure though, you never know for sure.

I would have loved to do some waving acoustic ceilings, but sadly it's a no go with grasshopper today. Have to do in a more manual way..

Tried a backup-boot from a clone from few weeks ago. It did not work out. I found something from Rhino, it says or warns like this:
Command: Grasshopper
The ArchiCADConnection component library was build against an older version of the Grasshopper SDK:
The current SDK: 1.0.6815.18657
The referenced SDK: 1.0.6157.23614

GH connection is of version:

Hi,

The green circle next to the document's name in your picture means that the Grasshopper Document is already connected to ARCHICAD. You can just close that dialog.

I do realize the AC-GH connection add-on is still in beta with AC21. With AC22 it will be a fully supported feature, I guess. AC22 FIN is launching on october 4th.

Thank You for the links (in those other threads) Daniel, I'll be trying those later.

Ok, one more time.

I removed the ArchiCADConnection.gha:
(Mac HD⁩/Applications/⁨GRAPHISOFT/⁨ARCHICAD 21/⁨Add-Ons/⁨Local⁩)
and Grasshopperconnection plugin:
(Mac HD/⁨Users/⁨username/⁨Library/⁨Application Support/⁨McNeel/⁨Rhinoceros/⁨MacPlugIns/⁨Grasshopper/⁨Libraries/⁨ArchiCAD 21⁩)
Opened terminal and:
sudo pkgutil --forget "com.graphisoft.ArchiCAD.Goodies.GHACLiveInstaller

After these procedures the installer worked without giving an error. Grasshopper connection is working again. It's time to learn a new trick with this tool.

Thank You Very Much !

Could you explain this bit some more please? Is that a command line entered in the Rhino command line? I have a similar problem where the Live connection doesn't work even though GH is running

Dear Ryan,

Thank you for the question and I am very sorry for the issue!

There could be some reasons why Archicad and Grasshopper cannot be connected. Make sure that no other version of Grasshopper-Archicad Live Connection is already installed! If
you already have one (e.g. a previous version), you must uninstall it before proceeding. We made a user guide here, please have a look at the section Uninstall Grasshopper connection to find out more: https://help.graphisoft.com/AC/24/INT/GC.pdf

The command above can be entered in Terminal, but this will be used as a last resort to remove the connection for the older version of the connection.

Please let me know if this helps!

Best regards,
Minh
