could anyone help me how to fix this installation problem, i can’t seem to install autodesk 3ds max 2012 on my computer. when i try to run the set up its pops up an error message saying “The version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you’re running. Check your computer’s system information to see whether you need an x86(32-bit) or x64(64-bit_ version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.”
Currently my computer is running on windows 7 ultimate.
My specs are CPU - Intel core i7 - 32820 3.60GHz / GPU - AMD Asus HD 9797 Direct CU II/ 30Gb ram. Any Suggestions? Need help ASAP.
Hi mthao and welcome to the forums.
As descirbed in the error message, you will need to find out if you have a 32 or a 64-bit system and download/install teh appropriate version. Go to the Start Menu>Control Panel>System; your system specs will be listed there, included the info regarding 32 or 64 bits.
Thankyou, I'm pretty sure my system is running 64bit and I thought the 3ds max 2012 installation software has both 32-bit and 64-bit versions? or do i have to download the 64-bit version by itself?
Confirming that the 3ds Max 2012 download file contains both 32 and 64BIT versions. With that being said I have no idea what would cause that error as your OS is supported, and will have to look into the issue and get back to you.
