Hi I’ve recently installed 3ds max 2012 student license on my pc, and when I try to run the program I recieve this message:

“The application was unable to start correctly (0x000007b). Click OK to close the application.”

The funny thing is that I have 3ds max 2011 already running fine on the computer with no problems at all. I tried updating drivers, directX running virus scan, start as admin etc. I tried reinstalling the program like 5 times, even the 2011 version I reinstalled, but it works absolutely fine, but the 2012 version just wont work. I have tried downloading the installation 3 times to make sure that it wasn’t the problem.

Hope somebody have a clue how to fix this problem, because I’m looking forward for using the 2012 version. And please let me know if you need any more info.

pc specs:
win 7 ultimate x64
Intel core 2 quadro Q9400
8 gb ram
Geforce gtx 260
