I've just thought about purchasing the newest innovation on the Wacom market -the Cintiq Companion and have become stumped as to how would one install 3ds Max on the machine as all I have is a physical disk and the machine has no CD-ROM utility. So any bright solutions out there?
Let's say I was to choose the first option. Since the disk contains a commercial license of Max 2012, would activating the commercial license on the 2014 30-day trial downgrade the software to the 2012 release? If I cant activate the 2012 release this way, i'll just opt for buying an ext. disk drive and accept your initial reply as solution.
