Failure to install latest Ornatrix over an older version 

This is a specific situation that occurs when all of the following events have happened:

  • You installed an older version of Ornatrix that only supported 3ds Max versions up to, say, 2017.
  • You uninstalled any old 3ds Max versions you had (2017 or earlier), but without uninstalling Ornatrix first.
  • You installed a new 3ds Max version, like 2020, and now try to install the latest Ornatrix version for it.
  • Ornatrix installer shows an error message "Did not find any supported 64-bit 3ds Max version"

If all of the above are true, open the list of installed applications in Windows settings and check if Ornatrix is still present there.
If not, use some registry cleaner or automatic uninstaller tool to remove it.

If yes, follow these steps:
  1. Put the following lines into a file called SimulateMax2016.reg
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    "Installdir"="C:\\Autodesk\\3ds Max 2016\\" 
  2. Double-click the file to import it into the registry
  3. Create the directory C:\Autodesk\3ds Max 2016\
  4. Uninstall Ornatrix from Windows settings. It should work.
  5. Delete the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\3dsMax\18.0
  6. Delete the directory C:\Autodesk\3ds Max 2016\

The new version Ornatrix installer should work now.
