When I updated my OS from windows 7 to windows 8 this error message started to appear when I tried to open 3ds max "The software license check out failed. Trror 5". 


How can I fix this?

Hi gog_ostos:


Please note of the System Requirement for Autodesk 3DS Max listed here.  In order for the product to function correctly, we suggest that you run it on a machine with compatible OS. If you are running it on a different OS than specified and it is not working correctly, our product support and contributors may not be able to assist you further. 


I hope this clarifies.


Best Regards,
