Redshift Renderer for 3dsMax

I am adding this for two reasons:
1) Redshift's installer is complete shite.
2) There appears to be NO information out there on how to install Redshift silently.

https://www.redshift3d.com/

This is for version 2.5.51.

Specifically I run a render farm where this product is being used within 3dsMax 2018.
We use floating licenses.

The installation itself is simple enough:
installer_name.exe /S
xcopy "\\server\share\Redshift Renderer\redshift-licenseFile.lic" C:\ProgramData\Redshift\* /Q /Y /C /R

However this does not actually install any of the needed files with 3dsMax 2018.

copy /Y C:\ProgramData\Redshift\Plugins\3dsMax\2018\nt-x86-64\redshift4max.dlr "c:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2018\Plugins\"
copy /Y C:\ProgramData\Redshift\Plugins\3dsMax\scripts\startup\* "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2018\scripts\startup\"
copy /Y C:\ProgramData\Redshift\bin\redshift-core-vc100.dll "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2018\"
copy /Y C:\ProgramData\Redshift\bin\OpenImageIO-1.6.17-vc100.dll "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2018\"

This copies the required files into the proper locations.

Note that Redshift is only compatible with nVidia cards, so you need to limit your deployment to them.
Also if the nvidia driver is not new enough, this does not figure that out for you.
The jobs will fail.
And on those the only way I have found to figure that out if via running the install manually.

Tested on Windows 7 x64 machines exclusively.

Regards.
