I had 3DS Max 2009 full with the 2011 upgrade installed on my machine. I was having issues with the program so I uninstalled all components of both progams and have installed 2009 back on to my machine. I went to activate the program using my SN and Activation Code I had recived when I purchased the program and my activation code is not working. When I go online to ask a question it tells me my SN is not valid. Can anyone please help.
You will need to request for a new activation code. 2009 has been retired under Subscription, so you might actually have to install and activate the last version you owned.
