    Somebody asked about it, so:
    I just tried it and it works fine with Rhino 6 SR10 (v6.10.18242.16581).
    Use whatever vray 4 Rhino fix you have.

    2 softwares had been left without v-ray 3.6. Rhino & Sketchup. Even rhino is ready now, so lets hope for a miracle...I believe until the end of 2025 vray 3.6 for sketchup will be out

    If you're lucky, somebody might leak them .
    There are many copycats on the loose.

    Roocoon seems that i'm not lucky. I've been looking for it a lot f time but without result. The most surprising is that there are a lot of copies ( ! ) as you say but no-one is leaking them out. I hope that someone who has it, is watching my message :)

    I hope your luck will change.
    I didn't say there are a lot of copies around, by the way (I only know of a single working fix, one per Rhino and SketchUp, not to mention other platforms).
    I said there are a lot of copycats. That's 'people', not 'products'.
    What you see around, are mix+matches of cracks from different platforms with lots of optimism that they might work.

    No, you can't. The files are different.
    I said (or meant) that the older crack for Rhino 6 still works with the latest Rhino 6 SR10. At least what I tried.
