Q - question

3ds max crashes during launch.

A - answer 3ds max crashes with no error message when launching. This error is often caused by incompatibility of your graphic card (driver).

Run 3ds max with the "-h" parameter: C:\3DSMAX4\3dsmax.exe -h - reselecting the driver (Heidi, DirectX, OpenGL).
