I just had the same problem w/ 3ds Max 2013 - paste the code into the same files, but find them in the R5 folder instead of the r1.

good luck

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.
