How to Install VRay Material Presets Pro 1.5
To install VRay Material Presets Pro 1.5, you need to have 3ds Max 2009, 2010, or 2011 and VRay SP2, SP3, or SP4 installed on your computer.

You need to extract all of them into one folder using a software like WinRAR or 7-Zip.
Once you have extracted the plugin files, you need to run the installer file called VMPPmaxSetup.exe. Follow the instructions on the screen and choose the destination folder for the plugin. The installer will also ask you to generate a license request file using a script called VMPP_LicGen_iND.mse. You need to drag and drop this script into the 3ds Max user interface and save the license request file as vmpptemp.dat in your C: drive.
After that, you need to run another script called VMPP_LicGen_iND.mse and load the license request file that you just saved. This will generate a license file called vmpptemp.dat in your C: drive as well. You need to copy this file and paste it into the plugin folder that you chose during the installation.
Now you have successfully installed VRay Material Presets Pro 1.5 for 3ds Max. You can access it from the Customize menu > Customize User Interface > Toolbars tab > Category: SigerShaders > VRayMtlPresetsPro.
