Updated: Honeybee Freezes and crashes Rhino


I’m just curious if anyone else has experienced issues opening honeybee lately?
Once I drop any honeybee component onto the canvas rhino freezes and soon after crashes.

Update: Originally i assumed this was a problem after installing Eddy3D, but I found a coworker who has not installed Eddy3d, and hers is freezing as well. So it seems to be a honeybee issue.

I found and old discussion on this forum regarding honeybee issues with a firewall. I know my office recently changed firewall settings. Is it possible that this is still an issue?


Same issue here! It seems after an update of my company’s antivirus honeybee components dont work properly. Rhino crashes and closes when adding HB components to the canvas.

Hi @AlexFalcon, is it possible to know which antivirus does your company use? That way we can do a check with all the other similar cases and get to the root of the problem. Thank you for reporting this.

@mostapha sentinel is the antivirus. Our IT team has solved the problem by deactivating the folder where HB is stored so the antivirus won’t check for threats in it and let HB run.

Same here, Sentinel the antivirus software was causing the issue.
