I have tried numerous vesion of 3DS MAx and have done a zero all data and clean install of windows several times.  I have even tried a couple of different versions of Widows (Home premium, Performance version etc) and i KEEP getting an error that prevents install.

(I am now running..and will stick with Windows 7 Home premium 64bit)

Whether i try the RUN install or save option, i get a red box coming up with an error message which states that the software needs .Net 4 or later to install.  But this system already has the latest .net 4.

If i click on the link with the error to install .NET 4 .. it eventually errors stating i already have .net 4 installed...No Kidding!!! 
I have searched various windows forum suggestions but none relate to this issue.

Please help- i have been messing around with this for WEEKS!!!! and i have 2 assignments well overdue. 

Somebody pleeeease help.  .
