Hi Phillip,
  Unfortunately, I just placed an order early today for the following package before I got your reply.

  Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 OEM 64-bit.
  http://www.discountmountainsoftware.com/miwi7prsp1oe3.html

 My question now is : Would this package (SP1) work all by itself without having to install the Professional Full version first?

My apologies Fred as I miss read your previous post to represent different 3ds Max downloads and not Windows 7 ones. SP1 for Windows 7 is a free download, and it looks like you purchased a copy of Windows 7 that already contains the SP.

 

Long story short, the answer to your question is yes, your package should work as is.

Hey there,

 

I tried both but to no avail. After about 20 emails, someone must have authorised it on the Autodesk end finally, because one day, it just started working. Not a very satisfactory conclusion I know - but lets just hope I was a one off and they sort it out.

 

Cheers!

Hi Simona,

  I have a question regarding installing 3ds Max, hope you can help me out. During the installation of 3ds Max I got the following message which prevents me from continueing the installation. Do you know how to go about solving this problem? I am the only person using the computer.

 

Service Mental ray 3.10 Satellite for autodesk 3ds Max 2013-64bit (mi-raysat-3dsmax 2013-64)failed to start.

Verify that you have sufficent privileges to start system services

Hi Fred,

 

Your best bet is to ask Autodesk 3ds Max experts on the AREA, our forum for Media&Entertainment software.

 

Happy New Year!

 

Best regards

Hi James,

  Maybe you can help me out on the PC installer side. On the Mac side, I installed individual program with no problem. On the PC side, according to Phillip, I should install from the SUITE INSTALLER. Where is the suite installer anyway? I tried to look for the 3ds Max in the "x64" folder, but it is individual program, not a suite installer as suggested by Phillip.

I hope you can help me out.

Hey Phillip, ? you mean SoftImage and Motionbuilder can only be run on a real Window machine?? If? I understand correctly, I can only install the Creation Suite on a single machine which is Mac in my case. Basically there is no way I can run these two programs, Right? Fred

My apologies for the delayed response Fred. 

 

You can download all of the components onto your Mac computer, however 3ds Max, Softimage, and Motionbulider need to be utilized in a virtualized environment or Windows partition. 

 

In regards to installing them, you should have multiple setup.exe files (one 32bit and one 64bit) on your media. Are you able to locate these? If not can you please attach a screen shot of the media components / options?

Hi Phillip,
  I am still having trouble with the installation. Included is the capture screen. it keeps telling me I don't have enough disk space. My BootCamp partition has 138GB available.
 Did I select the wrong thing? I hope you can help me out.
  By the way, I have to disconnect from the internet in order to start the installation wizard. Otherwise, it will give me a error 1606 " Could not access network location bin".

I cannot find a place to buy the mac os version of the  "Entertainment Creation Suite Ultimate 2013 Student"  - only windows. 

If I buy the "Entertainment Creation Suite Ultimate 2013 Student"   for windows, are the mac os versions versions included for Maya, Mudbox and SketchBook included as 'universal binary' options? I realize the other apps - 3DS, Softimage and MotionBuilder are windows only.
