You can include paths
to additional INI files within the local plugin.ini file; 3ds Max Design processes
these files as if they were part of the original plugin.ini.
This capability is helpful in settings where several systems on
a network are using the same plug-ins. The network administrator
maintains only a single remote INI file, rather than having to update
each machine individually.
Example: To add remote INI files to your
- Open your local copy of plugin.ini with
your preferred text editor.
- At the bottom of the file, type [Include] and
- After [Include], type these two lines:
NoteYou can give any title to the directory
(in this case, myremote or anotherdir,)
and the directory can be any local or remote directory. In addition,
the INI file can have any name.
- Save plugin.ini and
exit the text editor.
The next time you start 3ds Max Design,
it will load plug-ins from the directories defined in plugin.ini, as
well as plug-ins in any remote INI file specified in plugin.ini.
You can add as many remote
INI files as you need, making it easy to organize groups of plug-ins.
