I downloaded and installed 3dsmax 2013 with a valid serial number and product key. I had previously installed Maya 2012 and that program is working fine on the same computer.
The install of 3ds is successful, but when I try to run the program it tells me "The software license check out failed. Error 25".
I'm running Windows 7 home premium on an i3 laptop. Your help would be very much appreciated.
Certainly. there's no "programdata" directory on my system. Regarding the "all users" folder, windows 7 does not use such a folder. I looked for .pit files and found several, but not in the places indicated. Since I have Maya working I don't want to mess that up by erasing the wrong file.
I have Maya 2012 and 3ds 2013 running side by side, is that simply not supported?
A step by step would help me out a lot. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem. No reply from autodesk support.
the program data folder is a hidden windows folder
Actually I did get a response from support to this article:
which was equally unhelpful since none of the reference files are in my system. Thanks
