3ds Max installer and uninstaller available

To whom it may concern, I just write installer/uninstaller for the Appleseed 3dsmax plugin.
It based on the Wix toolset.
Also, has the ability to select the 3dsmax version from 2017 to 2020 as it supported at the moment and the capability of auto uninstall and update the plugin.
It is 25MB for all 3dsmax versions from 2017 to 2020 instead of about 120MB in GitHub.
I like to maintain the windows version of the installer and uninstaller of any type of application Appleseed needs.
I’m already working on LuxCore Project and especially MaxToLux, the 3dsmax plugin of luxCore, and I will be glad to be able to work on the Appleseed 3dsmax plugin too.
Please test the installer and if there is no problem with it let me know.
The source code will be available soon.
If it is possible to add it to the official Appleseed GitHub it would be much better.

Hi @TAO,

Welcome here at our forum.
Thanks again for your great work and the installer.
We support currently Max 2018 - 2021 and having an installer is definitely great from a user perspective.
We certainly can host the code on appleseed’s GitHub repository in the future.


version v1.0.0.2 for 3dsmax 2017 to 2021
can be download from
In the meanwhile, I’m working on the Appleseed stand alone setup project.
