I am working on some files unrelated to Datasmith or Unreal in 3DS MAX 2022.x. Team members are experiencing problems such as crash on open or other errors that indicate datasmith as the problem with any files I touch or create they in turn need to use.
These users to not have Datasmith installed as they do not use nor need it. Installing Datasmith for all users may resolve this issue however we (IT) do not want to install anything users to not need active or passive if we can help it. This is more of a hassle for to keep track of on top of other plug-ins and dependencies. This is more so when considering 100’s of machine in our render farm.
Does Datasmith add something to the scene root or to objects? I do not immediately see anything. Or is there some trick to having Datasmith installed without it doing whatever it is doing?
