It's been a while since I last installed 3DSMax4, and although I can find everything else (original box, serial number, manuals, and extra demo disks) that came with it, I cannot find the actual software disk. Is there anyway I would be able to recover this? If I recall correctly, there was also a free stripped-down version of 3DSMax4 (4.1?) available for download at the time; I had the full version, but I'm pretty sure that for what I want it for, the free version would work too.
For the type of work I do in 3D, I'd strain to use about 1% of the features available in version 4, let alone all that's been added since then. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I could justify the price of 2014 considering.
