FilepathFinder - is a most advanced tool for working with asset files in 3ds Max.
With FilepathFinder you can easy find, collect and work with asset files.
Utility supports XRefs of all types and processes all XRefs scenes linked to current.
Unlike all other such scripts, it really finds all resources (images, HDR-images, Proxy, IES-files, shaders).
FilePathFinder helps you quickly select objects in your scene or find the necessary materials and textures and place them in the Materials Editor.
Also with this tool you can easily archive the 3ds Max scene.

Also i have a plan for add the ability to rename links on HDD in the section "Find&Replace"

It's possible by two step
1) Rename file on HDD
2) Set the new path from FilePathFinder

Or you can use the Project Manager.

Please generate the bug report (menu "Help" ==>> "Create support Request")
If you can not run the FilePathFinder, then start the script SupportRequest.mse by dragging it into viewport.
You can find it in this directory

Thanks for bug-report.

Maybe you're using an older

Maybe you're using an older version of the Project Manager and run it before running the new version of FilePathFinder.

Restart the 3ds max and try again.
It must work.

Not reccomend for using the PM and FPF on one session of 3ds max.
The Project Manager have all features of FilePathFinder and has not reason for using both programs on one computer.
