[3.0.2 and 3.0.0116...] 3DSMax Duplicated entries "Customize UI"


we are faceing a strange issue regarding 3DSMax 2014 x64 and the NVIDIA Physx Plugin.

You can Customize your User Interface in Max at “Customize” --> “Customize User Interface”, then select the tab “Menus”.

If you Select the “Main Menu Bar” dropdown menu you can choose a lot of menu Items.
In our case all Physx menu items appear multiple times.

  • Show UI
  • Simulation
  • Rigid Bodies
  • Constraints
  • Rigs
  • APEX Clothing
  • APEX Destruction
  • Forces

We managed to clear the multiple entries by renaming the UI Folder at the appdata user path:

C:\Users%username%\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2014 - 64bit\ENU\en-US\UI

The folder and it’s content is then created with default values and doesn’t contain multiple entries at the first start.

Everytime you close and start 3DSMax all the PhysX Plugin menu entries are created in addition, if you start and close it 50 Times you have all the PhysX menu items duplicated 50 times.

With some time this does also affect the performance as it creates hundrets of entries…

Is anybody faceing this issue? Or is it a known Bug?
