Hi, theorically it's possible to place all files in a network path. But the process is not simple because there are multiple files, and each one must be in a different folder.
First of all, you can see a list of all files, and an overview of the installation procedure here
. Next, each one of the files are handled in the following way:
- Plugin file (forestpack.pro) must be in the plugins Max folder, or any path defined in "plugin.ini" (according to this
- DLLs (ForestVRay???.dll, Qt???_itoo4.dll, etc) must be in the Max root folder, or any path defined in the PATH environment variable.
- The library, maps, effects and other files are placed at C:\Program Files (x86)\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro. You can modify this path in the "MainDir" registry key, at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro.
- Additional library paths are defined at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro\LibraryDir
Please note we don't support this type of installation, because its complexity and potential issues. Also we'll do some changes in the next major update.
Instead, i would suggest you take a look to the unattended installation procedure in the documentation. It can be a simpler method to upgrade your workstations, and less problematic.
I hope that helps.
