you have the possibility to output checking results to HTML.

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.

Thank you!

I have totally forget 3ds max design :(
the installer read value from registry key and test if there is a compatible 3ds max version installed on your machine.

3ds max (normal) has the following registry key

however 3dsmax design has the following registry key

this is why the installer didn't work...I will create one for 3ds max design in a later time.
