i'm attempting to install forest 403 via command line options on many computers but I have 2 problems.

1) There doesn't seem to be any legacy plugin / library options. I need these to be installed. How do I do it?

2) there is a yes/no message box prompt to uninstall the old version (341) which kind of defeats the purpose of automated installs unless there is an undocumented flag like /Y or something?

1) Currently there is not an option to install the legacy plugins from command line. As workaround, to add this option you only need to copy the file "ForestPackPro2.dlo" to the 3dsmax plugins dir after installation. We will update our installers to add this option in next versions.

2) This message box comes from the 341 uninstaller, that didn't support automation parameters. Unfortunately there is not a workaround for this problem because the limitation is hardcoded in the old uninstaller. This problem is solved after updating to a newer version.

I apologize by the delay ! We didn't receive the notification for the new post.

The legacy library is installed at:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro\lib\2D\Classic
C:\Program Files (x86)\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro\maps\Classic
C:\Program Files (x86)\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro\matlib\classic.mat
