    Default Mental ray for 3ds max 2018

    Hello,

    I am using 3ds max 2018.
    I want mental ray as renderer plugin. I have downloaded and installed it from Nvidia.

    I have mentalray.dlz file in folder: C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2018\Plugins\NVIDIA\Plugins
    but i cannot see mentalray.dlz.mui file in folder: C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2018\Plugins\NVIDIA\Plugins\en-US

    Earlier I was using 3ds max 2015. In that case mentalray.dlz was in folder: C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2015\stdplugs
    and mentalray.dlz.mui was in C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2015\stdplugs\en-US

    While rendering through mental ray in 3ds max 2018 (vc++ 14.0), I am getting an exception:
    Exception thrown at 0x00007FFBC2D965CB (mentalray.dlz) in 3dsmax.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x0000000000000000.

    I think may be its because mentalray.dlz.mui missing in max 2018.

    Please provide me the mentalray.dlz.mui file for max 2018.

    The 3ds Max folder layout has changed substantially to support the new plugin interface introduced in Max 2017.
    So folder-by-folder comparison to Max 2015 might not make much sense.

    Do you have any specifics on your machine, or did you customize your Max installation? Do you install plain English version?

    I have Mental Ray for 3ds Max 2018 successfully running and don't have any "mentalray.dlz.mui" installed. So i guess your problem comes from somewhere else...
