3DSMAX 9 x64 plugin problems with Vista
show user profile  Dejitarujin
Since Windows XP x64 is even less compatible with programs and drivers than Vista, I was forced to utilize this evil operating system in hopes of unlocking 3D Studio's true potential. Ironically, 3D Studio 9 its self was installed and running with no problem before I even installed the fixes that are supposed to let it run on Vista. Instead, it's the plugins that are causing the problems.

While Particle Flow Tools Box 1 installed and runs perfectly fine, Box 3 does not. It didn't even modify the plugin.ini when it installed. I modified it myself using the Box 1 entry as a guide, but apparently that wasn't right, because I get two errors:

DLL failed to initialize.
Error code: 126 - The specified module could not be found.

Then an identical error, only for the file: ParticleFlowSubOperators.dlo

I then receive a third error, from some random plugin I got, with "Error Code: 14001 - The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail." This seems entirely too complicated for a freeware plugin that doesn't even come with an installer.

The last error comes from Vehicle Studio 1.7, which won't even install. I try to run the installer, and I get an error, "The operating system is not adequate for running Vehicle Studio 1.7 Car and Truck Edition." That's a bold accusation - does it require Vista Ultimate or something? I've tried compatibility mode, to no avail.

Can anyone help me with these? I don't need them urgently, but I will at some point in the future. All plugins installed were specifically designed for 3D Studio 9, 64-bit version.
Specialty: Non-organic modelling and effects.
Setup: 3D Studio 2010 with finalRender.
Rig: No, no I can't.

before you installed max and these plugins did you make sure to turn of UAC?

I have found that 99.9% of my applications installation problems in Vista, had come from having had UAC enabled when I installed them.
