OK this is what worked for me:
Although I have a 64 bit version, I used the Command Prompt to navigate to directory C:\Windows\System32 I typed and regsvr32 vbscript.dll. There is a space character between the comand (regsvr32) and the archive name (jscript.dll for example).
In order to navigate in a certeen directory with the command prompt use cd.. to move une directory up and cd NAME OF DIRECTORY to move one directory down (example: cd windows to move from c: to c:\windows, cd.. to move from c:\windows to c.
This way the activation screen was displayed correctly.
Thank you for helping us.I activated with succes but something have done wrong because when click two times the icon the programm doesn't open.Please ,help me to get a choise.
My 3D max 2011 worked fine unitil i had to format my pc and reinstall everything now i get the white screen licence thing. But mine sounds a little different to the rest. I get a small plane white box, dont even get the chane to click activate, but get this, if I open task manager and end the task, the activator windows comes up, can click activate and then it all works as normal, all radio buttons show, can click continue to activate my code but then the comuter gets on with the end task request and closes it. How annoying is that. Tried all solutions, mutiple browsers, reg edits, cmd prompts, nothing works.
Any advice anyone?

Did you try the adding-the-tag-to-the-html solution on the first page?
Strange how you can almost continue with the activation is windows thinks the task has ended, but initially it is still blocked, for some reason. Since you've tried all the other solutions, adding the <!-- saved from url=(0016)http://localhost --> tag might help, as described on page 1 here.
Hey, just wanted to give a big thanks to ya for this help! I know nothing of HTML scripting or editing, but followed your instructions (and thanks for the pics, definitely helped since I'm a visual learner), and on the next try to activate, all went well and was done in seconds. Can't tell ya how relieved I am now!
