Re: Manage Scene States Dialog Missing

01-05-2014 11:43 PM in reply to: y-p

Has anyone solved this problem yet?  I've got 2014 and it still seems to be a problem.   I have tried deleting the 3DSmax.ini file and letting it recreate itself, as well as completed a repair installation.

 

The "Manage Scene States" button is still not being checked after clicking it, and the dialogue itself is nowhere to be found.

Thanks.

Well,

 

I did not.

 

Im on 2013 version and tried deleting ini and repair install but with no luck.

 

Seems like (see page 1) a complete reinstall may solve it- but I did not yet want to reinstall everything as there are so many plugins and preferences to be set up again (not to mention the license server thingy..) that I always manage my scene around the scene manager.

 

Which for sure sucks.

 

Reinstall seems the only solution- and compared to the time spent to search for solutions it would have been done already anyway..

I got same problem.

And I can't solve it.


In my case, Max2012 work, but 2013 and 2014 do not work.

Well, no, I still don't.

 

Maybe a complete reinstall is a solution (repair install didnt fix it) but this is such an effort that I still have not chosen to go this way..

 

Actually even reinstalling all plugins is annoying.

 

And it was so tediuos to get my version (2013) running after lots of licensing issues. Dont want to lose days in the end.

 

So please- if you find a way to solve it without reinstalling, give the answer here. That would be great.

 

Good luck!

open up your state sets window.

 

 

its blank but you have the menu bar at the top

 

in the the drop down menu states> Options>REset Window Layout

 

back pops your gray window with your tabs and tree.

 

Done

Here is how I solved it:

I logged on in Windows as Admin user, started 3dsmax started the Scene
State Manager and it works.
Going back to my user and it works also.
