I added the following Windows args in SG’s Software Admin page to launch 3ds Max 2020 via Shotgun Desktop:
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2020\3dsmax.exe
-U MAXScript “C:\Temp\Startup.ms”
When I launch through SG desktop the Startup.ms script is not being executed.
The last entries I see in the MAXScript Listener is:
Shotgun: Resolving project…
Shotgun: Resolving configuration…
Shotgun: Updating configuration…
Shotgun: Starting up Toolkit…
Shotgun: Resolving context…
Shotgun: Launching Engine…
Shotgun: Engine launched.
Shotgun: Bootstrap successfully.
However, when I execute this command on the command line:
“C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2020\3dsmax.exe” -U MAXScript “C:\Temp\Startup.ms”
it works as advertised.
Is there something I need to configure when launching a DCC with arguments from Shotgun via Shotgun Desktop?
