THE FINAL SOLUTION......simply make the computer time before the date that you are in by an example two years and start the program the program will work immediately. 100% working in 3ds max 2012 32 bit for xp. Enjoy !!!
govy86 - thank you for the solution!
and for those of us that don't code, the " <!-- saved from url=(0016)http://localhost -->" that you copy and paste
goes just under the very first " <html> " you see, which should be the first line from the top.
Still no fix for this problem? No but seriously, I tried ALL steps and NOTHING works! It's kinda frustrating!!! How to activate? Why do they use IE in the first place?!?!1?!?!?!/?!/!?!?!??!? Come one autodesk, release a patch regarding this issue!
Ironic is that I actually activated autocad (and received e-mail with activation code) but the problem persists...
I added the tag to every RT, everywhere and still only blank screen. And the process required me to discover how f*'d up Microsoft is too, since I had to change Ownership and Permissions for every single related folder to follow the instructions. Both Microsoft and Autodesk are more focussed on user-control and piracy than the actual functionality of their products. Whatever you do, DO NOT GET WINDOWS 7, because none of your software will ever work again.
