Ive tried downloading Autodesk 3dsMax 2010, 2011, and 2012 and get the same result:
After the download, it gives me the huge file a really long name (Random letters & Numbers) with no real extension and asks how I want to open it.
I know for certain that my laptop can handle the program, I just need some ideas on how to get it finished installing!
Thanks for any help
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just for security reasons, I removed one of your screenshot as it had your personal info and the product Serial number.
I would suggest downloading the product again, but at this time save it to a folder on your hard drive (e.g. C:\3dsmax). Then go to the folder and run executable.
Interesting, I just tested this out and was able to successfully download the 3ds Max 2012 installer, Autodesk_3ds_Max_2012_English_Win_32-64bit.exe, which is about 3.25G.
After you are logged in into Autodesk Education Community:
1.Click on Download.
2.Click on Save (instead of Run).
3.’Save AS’ dialog box opens and will give you an option where to save the installer.
4.The installer file name is Autodesk_3ds_Max_2012_English_Win_32-64bit.exe.
If you happen to have your ftp site, let me know the logon info and I’ll upload the installer there for you.
Perhaps instead of ‘Save’ you clicked on ‘Run’ and it went to the cache.
I'm glad to hear that you got it work.
