Deadline doesn't find 3dsmax 2022 plugins, URGENT

Hello, we just updated to 3dsmax 2022 with latest updates, and also Deadline with latest updates.

When network rendering before everything was fine, but now it seems Deadline isn’t finding custom plugins for 3dsmax:

BerconNoise, TyFlow, Multitexture, etc.

Only Vray is found and renders without issues. Every render node has all the plugins in the correct locations, same as workstations.

This is very URGENT because right now we can’t render anything and it’s a Deadline problem.

But the plugin is in the correct folder!!

This an empty scene with a material applied with berconnoise, same thing happens if i use other plugins other than Vray.

Please help ASAP.

Make sure the path to the dll’s is in your $PATH environment variable. You can modify it in JobPreLoad:
