Max crashes before it's start . Why ?
show user profile  S. Silard
Ok so we all know what I'm doing when I see this :

but when after that I get this :

I'm not happy .

So max crashes before it's start .

I did reinstalled 3DS max , did restarted my computer . Turned off everything else . And I don't know what's the problem .

It's just happened from one day to another , I did not installed anything .

And it's 3DS max 2011 64bit .Maybe I should check another versions if happens the same .

Anyone had that problem before ? And what should I do ?

EDIT:And I'm using Windows 7 64bit , with high contrast theme , if someone got confused .

Congrats, you found my signature.

might be video drivers or plugin that causes it

also try resetting or hiding the max config file

If it's stopping on the loading one of the mental ray files, it has meant in the past that the firewall is blocking it. Has your firewall changed?

I did totally uninstalled 3DS max , and than Installed it again . So not sure if there's still some configuration . But , where's that max config file ?

And there's not any new driver or plugin , the plugin folder is totally empty .

@Nik : I did not changed anything on it .And I saw : "Starting 3DSmax...." text , before I got that blackness . So not mental ray problem at all I think .

Ok , so I did fixed it .

Wanna say thanks for Coxy , he did not know the correct answer , still helped me a lot to figure this out .

So , all I had to do , is , to delete the license file , and install max again .

I made the answer bold . If anyone gets that problem in the future . That could help .

Congrats, you found my signature.
