STUDENT - 3DsMax 2011 Activation issue

Hello all,


I've been having this problem with 3DsMax. I downloaded it about about a year ago and its been working fine up until a few days ago. Every time I start the program now, the product activation screen comes up and tells me that my copy of 3DsMax is about to expire and that I would need to activate it to continue to use it. I've reactivated my product at least 15 times by now, installed the service pack 1 update, and the message continues to recur. Can anybody help me out this issue? What's going on??? It's really annoying and I don't want to lose my copy and fall behind in school!

As you are both student, I recommend that you request a new serial number from our Student Community team to activate your product.
