SMTD fails to submit more than once in Deadline 9.0 SP3

Postby christianl013 » Sat Jun 10, 2017 11:38 pm

Hello, I just upgraded to Deadline 9 and the artists here have noticed some different behavior with SMTD for 3ds max 2016. It seems that one has to close and reopen the SMTD when sending jobs from the same file as once you send a job once it will not send if the SMTD has been left open and you try to send again. It just goes red, does not send the job but does not really throw any errors either to indicate why it can not send. To resolve this one has to close the SMTD and reopen it and it will send again. Some of my artists here like to leave the SMTD open when they are sending multiple passes from the same file. Is there a way to get this working in deadline 9 like it did in deadline 8?


Cheers, Christian

This is a known regression and will be fixed in the next SP(4) of DL9. Here's a quick patch for now (assuming you are on already):

Unzip and copy attached file into "../<your_repo>/submission/3dsmax/Main/"

Thanks for the feedback (and sorry for the bug!)
