Hello, last night I downloaded the student version of Autodesk 3ds Max 2012. After the program installed, I tried to open it.
1. A message popped up saying "3ds Max application has stopped working"
2. Then it goes on to shows two options, Debug and Close program.
I installed the Windows 32-Bit version. My computer also meets the system requirements (I think). I disabled User Access Control, and I disabled Data Execution Prevention for it. I have Windows Vista.
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo
CP P8600 @ 2.40GHz
Memory (RAM): 4.00GB
System Type: 32-bit Operating System
This looks like a profile corruption issue. Can you create a new user account and check whether you could able to run your 3ds Max on it.
