    Hi everyone,

    A user is having a problem with one of my plugins (ArrowMaker) when used in a Mac net render server or client. The plugin, which is an ObjectData plugin, works fine on a PC client or server, but when used on a Mac OSX 10.6.6 server/client it fails in the call to RegisterObjectPlugin(). The relevant code is:

    String name = GeLoadString(IDS_ARROWMAKER);   
    return RegisterObjectPlugin(ID_ARROWMAKER, name, OBJECT_GENERATOR|OBJECT_ISSPLINE, ArrowMaker::Alloc, "Oarrowmaker", AutoBitmap("arrowmaker.tif"), 0);   
    

    and this returns FALSE, whereas it should return TRUE to indicate success. The plugin works perfectly on a standalone Mac, it only fails in the net render environment. I checked that the resource files were in place and that is okay, although it seems that a missing resource or icon file doesn't cause RegisterObjectPlugin() to fail.

    Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening? The only thing I can think of is a fail in the Alloc() routine where a new plugin class is created, but I don't know why that would only fail under net render on a Mac. This is the code for that function call:

    static NodeData* Alloc(void) {return gNew ArrowMaker; }
    

    I'd be very grateful for any help resolving this. I can't test it locally as I don't use net render myself.

    Hello,
    i hade the same problem some time ago, the problem in my case is linked to wrong product name in xcode .... and another plugin loaded have the same productname (eg cinema4dsdk.dylib) if you rename the product after compile it cinema can't register it anyway if another identical product name plugin is already registred ... if the problem can be this ... ask to your customer to rmove all other plugin in net folder ... if all work fine mean you have to rename the full rpoject/target/product name in xcode before compile plugin.

    i hope that can help

    Franz

    Thanks Franz. I will certainly take a look at this. I really hope the cause is something like that, because so far I can't see what else it could be.
