Whenever I load Max and set a project folder.. it shows texture paths not found and I've to set the paths again.

put your textures in a subdirectory of your max file. Max will look down a hirearchy to find its textures

eg.

Girish/Max/Scene.max <- Your max scene

Girish/Max/Maps/etc.jpg <- Your textures

Alternatively if you store them in a library and want to reference them from where they are: make sure you Shift + T > Set Path

for your assets then save your scene.

If you dont want to do this manually go and download bitmap relinker this will find your textures for you.

edit: That dialogue box that pops up does not redirect your textures, only points to them for that session.
