First, sincere thanks to Oblique. I was hoping this update would resolve a couple of issue, but sadly, it did not.
I can't get RT to work, but it does behave differently, and I hope someone can help me straighten this one out.
When I change top viewport to activeshade, the viewport turns black and I get some messages (in the viewport) telling how long it took to accomplish things like loading plugins, translating scene for Vray, etc. and starting local render server is done. The last message is waiting for image data. I can right-click>close, and return to Top viewport (no crash), but nothing is displayed in the viewport.
This may or may not be related: When I try to launch VRay license server, I get a vrlservice.exe: Start Error dialog that says runtime system is not installed.
When I set RT as production renderer and try to render, the Max framebuffer pops up, and the "rendering" dialog says current task: rendering, but nothing happens. I can cancel out with no crash. It behaves the same if I set Engine to CPU or OpenCL.
Any help will certainly be appreciated.
