Can't get Radeon ProRender for Maya to work.

I'm using Autodesk Maya 2018 on Windows 10 and would like to use ProRender.

I am currently using a Radeon Pro WX4100 with a Ryzen 1600 and 16GB RAM

I followed the user guide and installed ProRender as instructed, The ProRender shelf

appeared in Maya but when I try to activate in through the Plugin manager I get this error:

C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2018/scripts/others/pluginWin.mel line 290: The specified module could not be found.

I have tried on 2 separate machines and get the same error, I've also tried uninstalling Maya 2018 and installed 2017 and

get the same error, but when I install others such as Render-man, V-ray even Octane with my old GeForce card they all work.

I've finally fixed it!

All it was is that Visual C++ Redistributable Packages don't come pre-installed,

as I don't play games often I haven't installed any which usually automatically install

this software.

For the fix: Download Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 from Official Microsoft Download...


Having another issue, with maya2018, tried what u mentioned, no succes.

GPU : R290x 3GB

PC : intel core i5 4Ghz 8Gig ram

Windows 10 64-bit

Latest prorender plugin, also installed new drivers 18.3.4 today to give it a try, and in the end even did a 100% clean install of drivers, software,... the long run

Issue :

after adding an object, activated prorender, all ok.

after adding a second object, virwport goes black wichever i choose where prorender is activated. when i remove 1 of the 2 objects, no matter wich one, the other appears again??

Tried with lights, materials, ... no succes.
