Please test resetting the HSDS.dlm configuration file.

1. Close 3ds Max Design 2012.

2. Browse to the following local user application preferences directory-

Windows VISTA / Windows 7

C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3ds​MaxDesign\2010 - 32bit\enu\plugcfg

3. Rename the HSDS.dlm configuration file in this direcrtory to HSDSdlm_old

4. Restart 3ds Max Design 2012, new user application preference file will be created on startup.

I hope that the above information is useful.

 

If renaming the HSDS.dlm to hsdsdlm_old does not help. You can also copy the hsds.dlm from another working machine and see if that works.

Hi,

I am having the same problem with 3ds Max 2012 64-bit. When starting it up, it hangs on HSDS.dlm... I went into local app data folder and into the plugcfg folder but theres no HSDS.dlm file there.

In case any one cannot find the HSDS.dlm file in appdata directory stated above, I found mine in C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2012\stdplugs and changed it to HSDS.dlm.off. Max then loaded up fine. I hope I won't need it later.
