Even easier - download the DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer from the Microsoft Website http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?
After I installed it the d3dx9_43.dll not found message disappeared and I could run 3ds.
Well Mr. Ramdass, as you must know Windows 8 Pro has a more recent version that this one, so, this couldnt solve the problem.
I assume Autodesk tested all version first of letting them see the light, this is causing a lot of problem a loose of time.
I have currently been introduced to 3ds max in college and I'm struggling though the Installation part. I have it downloaded onto my laptop but the set up im having problems with it is saying
CRC failed in x86/max/max1/.cab
Unexpected end of archive
I don't have a absolute clue what this means and I'd just like to get it all installed and catch up in my class. If anyone has any insight on this anything will be appreciated.
I've downloaded Autodesk 3ds Max 2012 32 bit
