3ds Max 2020.0 V-Ray 5.1.1 Deadline Python error on certain machines

I can’t figure out this error, on random machines (the same ones)

I get this

   at Deadline.Plugins.DeadlinePlugin.FailRender(String message) (Python.Runtime.PythonException)
  File "C:\ProgramData\Thinkbox\Deadline10\workers\xxx\plugins\12345\3dsmax.py", line 166, in StartJob

I’ve submitted a ticket, but have a feeling I’ve encountered this before and it’s a timeout thing where the job bombs if it doesn’t respond in a certain time.

OS is the same build, as is 3ds and V-Ray, loads fine locally but fails on certain machines via Deadline

I have this issue, too. With deadline
I know this is so long from the time you created this ticket, but may I know if you have resolved this issue yet?

I’m trying to search my emails for the ticket (i have too many!)

This could have been down to a silent install not registering the app, or fixed by a reboot to set the env vars. Try a manual install and reboot of the machine got released and looks like it goes all in on Py3, maybe worth a shot

Thank you for your response.

I have upgraded to but no luck. I find the error Python.Runtime.PythonException everytime I try to Suspend, Complete or Delete jobs. This error blocks PostTaskScript from being executed.

I am still trying to figure it out.
