Packages not appear when installed

Hi;
When i install some packages like celery and arch-lab.net, its nodes don’t appear in my list.
I use dynamo core 2.00.4354 that integrated with Alias.
Any suggestions please.

Thank you all.

make sure to download the 2.0 versions of those packages. I believe at least celery has been updated, and I think Archilab was done or is in progress.

Yes I downloaded the latest versions but it still not working.
I think the issue arises from python related stuffs.
Should i install some python libraries to my PC, how to get it?

I dont think you should install extra python packages, but maybe @Konrad_K_Sobon can shed some light about this.

it could be the specific version of dynamo which is bundled with alias, but I am not sure.
Do you see any notifications in the menu for dynamo. I agree with @erfajo you should not need to install additional python libraries to see packages.

No, there is no notifications. The packages manager shows that the packages are installed, but there is nothing in the list!!.

please look in the console as well for errors -
likely you are trying to load packages which have a dependencies on the RevitAPI dlls - these will not load unless you are in revit.

Yes, there is some errors, may you have a look

archilab depends on the revit api - it cannot be loaded while using alias.

you could post an issue there for @Konrad_K_Sobon - maybe he can move some non revit functionality to a different core package - or you can fork his repo and do something similar.

Alright, that explains why archi-lab.net not working, what about “Celery” package. I looked up the log file for something related, but i think there is nothing.
Here is the full log after a new fresh session:

Hi @maxy_13

Try loading dll file manually. Go to File-> Import Library and select custom packages dll file and open.

I loaded .dll manually and that worked like a charm.
Thank you for your help.
Much appreciated

@maxy_13 No Problem :wink: Hope your happy now :slight_smile:

If it works to “reload” the dll file, then @Konrad_K_Sobon should have this information. Then he might have to edit his package. Many things could have happened, but it would help him to fix it having this information.

Are you aware that there are problems using the 2018 API if you are using a package in Revit 2017 environment? I havnt got any errors on this in my package and I am also only using the 2018 api (from nuget)

I have to say that I haven’t been trying my own package in Revit 2017 since I got my computer reinstalled around February, I don’t have Revit 2017 or the API installed anymore. I would hate to reinstall Revit 2017 if I don’t need to :slight_smile:

AFAIK- you should be fine to use the 2018 api in the 2017 environment, unless your package calls a method that does not exist in the 2017 api.
