Can't install 3ds max 2014 or 2013 w/ error message

8647 Views, 12 Replies

So, I've been fighting with this installation for days now.  I am trying to install 3ds max as a trial to ensure that it runs, and I can not get it installed.

 

There are twelve steps in the installation (descending from 12 when you begin).  It gets down to step 7 (when it will begin installing the actual program), and then begins to ascend again to 12, rolling back everything that had succeeded.

 

In the installation log, here is the message I received:

------------------------------

 

Between my attempts I have removed Autodesk keys from the register, uninstalled anything by autodesk, cleared me %temp% folder, cleared program data\autodesk and cleared user\nick\appdata\local\autodesk and \roaming\autodesk

 

So There should be no remaining files, I cannot figure this out and I am sitting here ripping my hair out, I hope someone can help me.

It's hard to say from that log why the program is failing.  There should be a larger installation log in your %TEMP% folder that may shed some additional information.

Yes, and it is huge so I'm not sure what would be useful from that.

 

This seems worrysome:

SOFTWARE RESTRICTION POLICY: C:\Autodesk\WI\Autodesk 3ds Max 2014\x64\max\3dsMax2014.msi is not digitally signed

 

APPCOMPAT: looking for appcompat database entry with ProductCode '{52B37EC7-D836-0409-0064-3C24BCED2010}'.
APPCOMPAT: no matching ProductCode found in database.

 


SOFTWARE RESTRICTION POLICY: C:\Users\NickG\AppData\Local\Temp\_AI3B15.tmp\x64\max\3dsMax2014-standalone.mst is not digitally signed
SOFTWARE RESTRICTION POLICY: C:\Users\NickG\AppData\Local\Temp\_AI3B15.tmp\x64\max\3dsMax2014-standalone.mst is permitted to run at the 'unrestricted' authorization level

 

What else should I be looking for?  This is seriously driving me nuts.

It's amazing how about a month after I post this, someone is trying to help.  What ended up fixing this problem was a fresh installation of Windows 7.  Though this is extreme, nobody from Autodesk was much help, I had called and spoken to live chat and nobody had any idea what was going on.

Sounds like you needed Microsoft Windows support, not Autodesk support.  :smileyvery-happy:

That log didn't appear to yield any helpful information that I could find.   :smileysad:
