Hi there, I've been using 3D Max hassle free for years but recently I built a PC and I tried 3D Max 2012,13 and 14 (Student Licenses) and none of them load up but instead bring my PC to a crumbling halt. Every other application and game I've got work fine. I've tried numerous re-installations but it's the same every time There was a point where 2012 was working by running as an administrator. It took about 10 minutes to load up. Had that for an afternoon but now it doesn't work at all. Just keeps saying "initializing" in the bottom left hand corner. Does this indefinitely until I click anywhere on the screen totally crashing everything requiring me to press the reset button. If anyone has encountered this problem before or similar and/or has any ideas about how to resolve this I'd really appreciate it.
