Problem with V-ray in 3DS-max
show user profile  Madredchris
Hello Guys,

I recently installed V-Ray, and I didn't get to work with it before the first error likes to buckle me down to 0 possibility's with the renderer.

I checked if the versions of my max and V-ray and yes they are.
(3ds Max 2011 x64)
(V-ray 2.0 x64)

Now the thing is, I installed everything and didn't get any error's during the installation.
So I booted Max and got this Error

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

and after I pressed 'Ok' I get this error again.

Any helps please?

I'm not familiar with that one.
Did you manually attempt to find that file on the HD? ( ?

Have you posted on Chaosgroups forum?.....Might be quicker answers there?

Thanks Dr. Jim for the fast reply,

I haven't thought of that option yet, thanks for bringing that to mind.

If I cant find it manually, then I might be able to download it somewhere.
Will try that.

Doubt you would be able to just dload it somewhere......
It should have installed properly...and should be in the right place.

Are you running WIN7?
Did you run the installer in Admin Mode? Sometimes there are odd write permissions that disallow files being put in certain places,.....running in Admin Mode will insure everything is in order.

EDIT: Confirmed. I just checked my HD and they are all there, the proper folder Scripts/Startup...

You're install did not work properly if you do not have them in there.
Uninstall. Reinstall in Admin Mode.

I didnt install WIBU drivers or register the V-ray license service, could that be the problem

I am not sure whether the install of those specific maxscript files would be tied to WIBU or license....

But, would you expect Vray to run without WIBU or the VRL (vray license) ??

Would strongly suggest a full UNinstall.....then FULL reinstall (ADMIN MODE)....and choose a license option.

That didnt seem to work at all, not even with the wibu & license.

It says something about ADD LINE.. Maybe a lil' scriptin?

There should be no need for scripting,...or dl'ing a file or anyting like that.

Vray is pretty mature,proven...and used by most of us here. It installs and works fine.
If it is not working right on your system then you have something else going on,....and I wouldnt want to 'patchwork' a fix together even if I could.

You need to email Chaos, or check their forums.....have you even looked on the Chaos forums? There could be a thread (and resolution) about your very issue....

Check them out.....

That is the most understandable thing I have ever written;
W7 x64
MAX x32andx64
Vray x64.

But vray was writing at the x32 so it kinda clashed..
