Backburner 2013 issues
show user profile  Henrik5000

Recently upgraded my two boxes to 3ds Max 2013 from 2011. Now my render slave won't render backburner submitted jobs properly. The job gets submitted to the manager ok, and Max fires up, but closes after a minute or two yielding the error message: "Error message: Launcher: Timed out executing command:"C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2012\maxadapter.adp.exe” in the server window.

The box is running Vista (yes it's a piece of crap I know, but as it just renders I have not bothered to upgrade it and I fear it would not remedy this problem even if I invested time in a complete reinstall). I run all the software as an administrator and UAC is switched off. Max renders fine if I open the job on the render slave manually, this is seemingly a problem backburner has firing max up in the right way.

Anybody have any clue on how to fix this?

Don't know if this will help, but if you read your error message, it says \3ds Max 2012\.
Maybe it is looking in the wrong folder?

Thanks for the reply, but actually I mistyped the error message! It should be 2013!

Really? Nobody? Any BB experienced individual I could ask a few questions?

I have had similiar issues. Maybe not excatly the same but I do not really remember
It seemed to happen while I was baking large scenes. Sometimes it was random.
But it worked fine while using batchrender.

I tried every solution out there. Worked with it for 2 weeks and no solution. So I decided to return to 2012.

We too rolled back to max 2012 with backburner 2008.1. Hope to hear from Henrik if he managed to fix the issue.
