install paths
« on: March 20, 2012, 03:25:57 AM »
I have installed 3.81 (x64) and I have noticed that the installer places everything in the /program files (x86)/ folder and nothing in the /program files/ folder. Yet when viewing

http://www.itoosoft.com/forestpack/reference/install.php

It refers to the 64bit folders? Or does this info page only refer to a 32 bit install?

Thanks!

Forest Pack doesn't install anything on the c:/Program Files folder on a 64 bit system, because all shared files between 3dsmax versions are 32 bits executables or non-executable (as libraries or thumbnails). Only the plugins itselfs are 64bit binaries.

There is only one folder called <forestdir> with all these common files, pointed by the registry key MainDir and installed by default on C:\Program Files (x86)\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro.

Anyway, there was mixed references to both paths in the documentation.

I just fixed it, leaving only "C:\Program Files (x86)\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro", which is the default path for Windows 64 bit (the most used configuration for Max).
