There seems to be a problem with DR.
everytime I cancel a dr render,there is a error popping up that vray adv 2.20.03 is not supported by current version of multiscatter.Otherwise the renders render fine.Now everytime I need to close and open the renderslaves to render again after the errors.

I can confirm that bug, this is what shows in the errorlog of the renderslave when cancelling a DR render:

[2012/Jan/29|16:56:19] endSequence() finished.
[2012/Jan/29|16:56:19] Closing DR session from 192.168.0.104. << Render master
[2012/Jan/29|16:56:19] warning: Failed to delete server scene file "C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2012 - 64bit\enu\temp\vray_server_scene.max" (183)

This is a very annoying bug, all renderslaves need to restart the vrayspawner service to be able to render again.
Will there be a fix soon?

Have you updated multiscatter on slave computer?
Does it render properly if not to cancel render?

Yes all slaves are updated, and it renders fine if you didn't cancel a previous render.

Is the RAR file corrupt?
I can unrar it, but when I move the folder, the EXE file dissapears?

Hello and thank you for your attention. I am new at using MuyltScatter, but it seems to be pretty much straight forward. I have a problem while using it, it doesn't seem to work all that well with Vray proxies. I mean I have a plane or spline where I am going to use the scatter, I select it and select a Vray proxy to make the scattering, and it apparently does it, as I see many cubes representing the original across the plane or spline, with whatever parameters I choose, (Total objects, scale, rotation, etc.) however when I render the scene, using vray 2.2, it renders everything in the scene BUT the Scattered proxies, it renders the original object but not its scattered copies.
Then I tried the "Collapse everything into a single mesh" option and then it rendered everything, however the scattered proxies look like ghosts, what is being collapsed into a single mesh are only the faces representing the original proxy.
I hope you can help me with this as I really don't know what is wrong. Thank you.

Can you share your scene?
