Do you have V-Ray installed?
We're correctly working on figuring out together with Chaosgroup why V-Ray and Bongo 3 crash. 
If the Rhino crash dialogbox came up, you hopefully sent it in. 
To get Bongo 2 to show up, please go to Tools> Options > Plug-ins..

Can you please make sure that in the Plug-ins list, is there a plug in called Bongo 2.0 and Bongo UI 20?

Well I loaded bongo 3 and it crashed rhino 6 when starting up.  I tried it twice.  So I then went thru the bongo 3 installer and uninstalled it.  Now however bongo 2 does not start up.  When I go into preferences I see bongo 2 under licenses. Bongo does not show up in the menus.   So I did a reinstall and as I was doing that it made the statement that bongo is already licensed.  How to get bongo 2 to show up in Rhino 6?

In the C:\Program Files\Bongo 3.0 (64-bit) folder you have the Bongo Version Switch, so you can switch between Bongo 2 and Bongo 3 inside Rhino 6. Unfortunately it still doesn’t include support Rhino 7 WIP.
Personally I have Bongo 3 in the Rhino 7 WIP and Bongo 2 in Rhino 6.

It is exciting to see the progress of Bongo 3 so a few tutorials would be great!!

Makes it kinda tough to test out bongo 3 WIP because I need to flip back to Bongo 2 easily to get work done.  What would be good is if Bongo 3 worked on Rhino 7 wip.
