Hard Reset?
show user profile  CorruptDemon
So, I want to reset my 3ds max to look like it did when first installed it on my computer for the VERY first time. I've tried reinstalling it but that doesn't work. I've tried loading the defaults but that doesn't work. I want to total have it reset ever bar position little adjustment and everything else i have changed to it so that it's like new. But i can't find out how to do this.
I heard something about a 3dsmax.ini file but i searched my whole 3ds max folder and found no such file. Nothing even close.

So if someone knows how to reset 3ds max 2009 to it's default settings as it would be starting up for the very first time please share that information with me because it would help me out SO much.

No help is required anymore. I have fixed this problem on my own after waiting for like 3 months to see if i could do without it. Seems when i explain my problem in depth so people understand i can fix it myself.

I uninstalled the program and deleted the folder i found
C:\Documents and Settings\User name\Local Settings\Application Data\Autodesk\
Which up until now i had no idea existed or for that matter other programs had it to. Reinstalled 3ds max and everything was like brand new.

Anyway, Reason i'm writing this is because i hope it helps other people who have a hard time and messed up their settings and can't get them back also.

Well, that folder contained the 3dsmax.ini, so there's a chance that alone would do what you wanted.
There is a maxstart.max scene which loads at the beggining too, and probably plugins would remain untouched
