This release of the .Net framework does not enable CAS policy by default, so this load may be dangerous. if this load is not intended to sandbox the assembly, please enable the loadfromremoatesources swtich. see http://go.micsrosoft.com/fwlink/?linkId=155569 for more information"

2014 please!

I know I am not the first one around here, but I am dying to have a 2014 version. Any chance it would happen? Just starting on a massive project and can't live without HCG.
Thanks in advance!

Search bar,

Hi, do you think you could add a search bar??
I have a lot of 3ds max files to search but it could be very helpful to have a search bar that you could just type what you search and drag it to my 3ds max scene.

thank you. ps

sorry for my english haha
