Environment Tab (8)
show user profile  Preston556
Hello all! I have a question about the Environment Tab that I desperately need answered. I've consulted Autodesk, and it's always reinstall. Anyway, in both versions of max 2009, x32 ans x64, the Environment tab (key 8) will not function anymore. I use the 8 button, and the box does not appear, I use the actual Environment button, and still nothing! Today is the first day that x32 started, x64 awhile ago. I have reinstalled both versions, but the problem is persistent. I've googled for a long time, but alas, there is nothing I could find. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Maybe the tabs are open, but in an area that I can click on? If you would please help, it would be greatly appreciated.

I tried, but I had no results. Thanks for the answer though, I didn't even expect to get one haha.
Unfortunately, I keep thinking the window is spawning somewhere in 3ds max, where it's not being displayed. Or for some reason, is just not opening. I hadn't done anything awkward to make the window not open, and it's just the Environment tab that's doing this. I've completely erased 3ds, reinstalled, and still has the same problem.

Thanks again for responding,

Try deleting your Max .ini file and restart Max.
The file will be somewhere like
C:\Documents and Settings\mark\Local Settings\Application Data\Autodesk\3dsmax\2009 - 32bit\enu
