Everything related to Maxwell network rendering systems.
This is the error message I get:

There are error messages in the log starting at:[19/August/2016 23:46:34] Error in merging process. The process crashed some time after starting successfully. Merge process could not be completed. Temporary files are saved and can be merged manually. Go to Menu/Open Temp Folder. You can find more info using the search tools in the log window.

I tried with all 12 of my render nodes, with 6 or even with 2. ALL have this issue. It all worked fine for weeks and after I reinstalled windows 10 due to a sad crash and a clean install of Maxwell, all hell broke loose.

I can not merge ANY scene... tried with the provided soda can scene from Maxwell, even that could not get 2 mxi files merged. Also tried the manager and network monitor running on one of the nodes, same problem. no success merging anything. Even the manual merging process fails.....

#391991 unlucky 13 :twisted:

This version has very nasty bug - it is impossible to merge MXIs, and it was fixed in next .1.4 but new bugs appeared (impossible to resume MXI) in this version too.
You should anyway switch to latest .1.5 version.
