I found a way to get rid of the file not found error, you need a copy of the Autodesk DWF Viewer (It's a free download from the Autodesk site).

Unfortunately the file is only offered as a .msi but you can run it without a hitch in wine with the command
`wine msiexec /i c:\\pathToFile\\nameOfMsiFile.msi`

Unfortunately I can't figure out the 1615 code sent back by the 3dsMax.msi installation file (the setup.exe also returns it, but not before trying to install DWF Viewer if it can't find it and also DirectX 9).

What's weird is return code 1615 from the Windows installer is "SQL query syntax invalid or unsupported. - [ERROR_BAD_QUERY_SYNTAX]" ( which seems strange to me, maybe I'll investigate Windows SQL support... if that is an accurate error message to begin with.

well, i have installed max 8 on another winxp machine, and i _belive_ that when i started setup with the .msi, it did not try to install directX.
