Hello to Maxwell community,
Apart from sharing bug for lost plugin in SW2011/64, I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Maxwell people & community for that really really amazing piece of software called Maxwell Render. Our company selling customers specific services based on Maxwell renders is doing really fine, and most of it, is thanks to Maxwell superior output.
Thank you guys, please keep up delivering amazing soft.

Bug installing 2.6.1 plugin for SW/64 doesn't load.
win7/64 pro
maxwell 2.6.1 (previous 2.6.0 working w/o pbm)

Did read readme, repair vcredist_x64, repair plugin install...
SW does not load Maxwell plugin, no menu, no side panel, no mxs format as "save as" menu...
Any help welcome, Enjoy your day

If you go to C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\MaxwellDotNET\Plugins\SolidWorks\Logs, you should find that there is a file name MW4SW_LOAD.txt. Rename it (to prevent it being overwritten), and then start SolidWorks to have it generate a new one; then send me (jeremy at nextlimit dotcom) the two files, so I can take a look.

Then, you can try this internal build:
I have been having some problems recently with a buggy NVIDIA driver preventing the plugin from loading in Rhino; it is not unlikely that the same issue could affect SolidWorks, so give this a try and let me know if you see any difference.
