Installed 3ds Max 2018 and it works great in the 30 day trial mode. No issues. However, it crashes when I try to license.
1) If I select "Enter Serial Number" from the licensing splash screen, it goes to the Max splash for a while, then crashes. Going into trial mode, however, allows the software to run.
2) Trying to license from within the app also crashes. I press "Already Have a License" on the trial screen, then get a second "Activate" screen. When I press "Activate", it crashes.
Then continue with these steps if you still have an issue.
Report back on the progress.
