I posted this issue here, but no one seemed to be able to help, unfortunately, aside from pointing me to these forums.
The gist of the problem is, that Max starts up, and I see the welcome box for student license in the foreground of the program, with everything appearing in the background. I try to click continue, or anywhere else, and it immediately freezes and goes white, and Windows says that it stopped responding, leaving me no choice but to close the program.
