View Full Version : "GetDir #scripts" points to 64 bit installation when running 32 bit version

08 August 2009, 12:54 PM
I just moved to a Vista 64 bit machine for the first time, and I have Max 2009 32 and 64 bit versions installed.

When running the 32 bit version, this code:

GetDir #scripts

Returns this result:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\3ds Max 2009\scripts"

Which is the path to the 64 bit installation. Does anyone know how to work around this so it correctly points to the 32 bit installation?

"C:\Program Files (x86)\..." IS the path to x32 applications
"C:\Program Files\..." for x64

Oops, ha ha. Well, that explains a TON of problems I've been having, then. Thanks so much, Thomas! :)
