So, I'm going to create 2 versions (2011+2014) for each of the following:

Hardware
Mental ray
Scene renderer
Software renderer

I've copied a version for Hardware.... I copied 2009+ and called it 2011.

I've put C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2011\bin\Render.exe in the Executable (64bit)

The group called 'Hardware Renderer' has search paths and other info included. Do I need to enter this info into my new version or does RenderPal look at the group if no info exists in the version I've made.

Actually, do I only need to make these versions for 'Scene Renderer'?

The scene renderer 'Uses the renderer set in the scene/layers'. So, does that mean that whatever is set in the scene, RenderPal will use.

For example:

SCENE 1 is set to render mental ray with an output name of 'test render' and a jpg format
SCENE 2 is mental way with an Occlusion render layer and layer overides
SCENE 3 is using hardware.

Does this mean all I need to do is select Scene Renderer in RenderPal and RenderPal will look at the scene and render what I've set in the scene?

If so, can I just delete the Hardware, Mental ray & Software renderers and just use Scene Renderer

Sorry to be a pain but I need to understand everything correctly before I can explain to others.

The scene renderer usually does the job pretty well and works the way you described. But you should definitely try this before deleting the other renderers (hiding them might be a better option).
