Re: 3ds max on Windows8

03-20-2013 02:50 PM in reply to: pawwilon

I am having issues with 3DS Max not running as well. I have ran as admin, and in Windows 7 compatibility modes, I have uninstalled and deleted all the files and the re-installed multiple times. Every time I start it up, the program freezes and crashes my graphics processor. Here is an image of the error code I recieve for my graphics card. Can anyone help me with this? Windows 8 is the most frustrating thing to try to use Autodesk programs on.

that looks like more a video card or video card driver issue

You are correct, I recently updated my drivers in January through the Lenovo support website, to my dismay, nothing worked then. I just installed the Februaury drivers for my Nvidia K2000 GPU and now it runs. Hopefully this fixes my problems running Maya as well. Thanks you for pointing out the obvious. Sometimes that's exactly what is needed. It is seriously appreciated. :smileyhappy:

What about 2011? Will Autodesk 2011, especially 3DS Max, run on Windows 8?

3DS Max 2014 most definitely works of Windows 8. I don't remember EXACTLY what I had to do but it was definitely a .dll problem. I believe I deleteda bunch of the .dll files in the program files for Max and reinstalled the program to let it install the correct ones. Something about one of the old files hanging around and had to be deleted. Try: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-2013-2014-DWG-Format/HELP-can-t-start-Autocad-2014/td-p/389600...
