Error when launching 3Ds Max 2011

Hello! I just installed the free version for students of 3Ds Max 2011 but when I launch it it gives me this error: Error parsing xaml file: root element is missing. When I accept it appears: The main Ribbon configuration file is possibly corrupt. Reset to factory defaults? And then no matter if I clic Yes or No the program starts and it seems to work perfectly but the Graphite Modeling Tools and basically the stuff that's just under the menu is gone. And it's not like their visibility is turned off. I just can't find them anywhere. And I don't know if there's amything else that I'm missing and just don't notice. Anyone has any suggestions? I'd be thankful
