assign Material to objects without materials.
collect all textures used in the scene put them in the same folder as the 3ds max file,  then strip their path so they are relative, it will also clean material editor and remove un used materials.

Installer for 2014

Please update the installer for max 2014.
It works perfectly in 2014, so you don't have to change the plugin.
Thank you.

Fix found!

I resolved this issue by updating registry key.
Just run it and after installation will see your 3ds Max 2012.

for 2012 and 2013...

for max 2012 and 2013 as I said I didn't yet test it so the installer may cause problem

the installer use registery key to detect 3ds max installation 9 to 2011 have the same registery key I don't know if this is changed for 2012...

so you have to do manual installation...just copy files manually (instruction are in manual installation folder)
about g1.bmp and g2.bmp I have attach them to this comment...

thanks for your interest...

Not working with max2012 or max2013

The installer fails for me saying I don't have a correct version.
I am running max 2012 and 2013, not design, so I don't see what the problem is.
Win7, admin, etc.
Any suggestions?
