Can't click more than one model?

If you are using Germinate and cannot generate G-Code if you put more than one model on the build plate, try this. Instead of double clicking on the Germinate launch icon, right click on it. Then select "Run as Administrator." This seems to do the trick

Just wanted to add that you MUST Run As Administrator every time you want to slice multiple models. What Germinate does is try to write a temporary .STL file containing your multiple models in a /Program Files/Germinate 1.1/PrintModel. If it doesn't have Admin access, it can't write there. But rather than just failing with an error message, Germinate goes ahead and slices the most recent model you previously loaded. You then get really puzzled why your Root seems to want to keep printing a previous object after you slice and load a new model. So, long story short, just Run As Administrator, always, and you'll be good!

I am very pleased with the results. I just upgraded to a not so old computer. I'm having nozzle issues so I haven't had a chance to try it. But it is slicing more quickly.
