Hey Scott, think you can help me out with this?
I have a slightly different problem. My OS crashed last week (Windows XP) and upon reinstalling, I had to uninstall and reinstall 3ds Max 9. I’ve had to do this 3 times for various reasons in the past and never had a problem. THIS time after reinstalling Windows, when I click the icon to launch Max, I get the follow error:
“A License system error has occured. You must uninstall and reinstall this product to initialize the license management system.” If this problem continues, contact your system administrator or authorised Autodesk product dealer. Error [1.1.98]”
I have removed anti-virus entirely and shut off my windows firewall during the installation period and the same error pops up. Autodesk takes your $4,000 and and pretty much says F* You to support their own software so are what are the alternatives to fixing this problem? Any ideas? : /
