I'we recently got a new computer, with Windows 8. When i wanted to download 3DS Max from you guys, it obviously installed Akamai Netssion to do so.
This however has caused me to be unable to shutdown my computer.
I could not find anywhere to post this on akamai's website, so i thought you guys might wanna know.
Whenever i close the akamai netsession client(s), my system will shutdown as usual, but when it's running and i wan't to shutdown, nothing happens.
I did try to search for this, but i didn't find anyone else with this problem, and wanted to let you know. But if someone has an issue where you cannot shutdown your system, try closing Akamai netsesion client.
I'm just gonna get my software downloaded and then uninstall akamai. But it was pure luck that i tried closing akamai netsession before a shutdown.
if it's a common issue, you might wanna let Akamai know.
shutdown /f /t 0
Run that in an administrator launched command prompt, or create a batch file and run it. That should shut you down no matter what.
