Additional Comments

Getting 3d Studio Max 5 Running on UBUNTU in 16 ( Easy) Steps. Deviation is not Recommended. 1) Install Wine 1.3.26 In Synaptic Package Manager ( See This: http://www.winehq.org/download/ubuntu ) ( This SHOULD include winetricks ) 2 ) Run WINETRICKS --> Select default wineprefix --> O.k. --> Install a Windows DLL or component --> O.k. Select the Following From the List: Dirac, ffdshow, gecko120, Tcodecs, i3codecx, mfc42, vb4run, vcrun2008, vcrun6, vcrun6sp6, and xvid 3) Check them off and click o.k. 4) Complete automated installers, and 1 installer with compatibility notice --> O.k. ( Simple and automated procedure ) ( Note some of this MAY be overkill, but in the end it works and after standing on my head for three days figuring this out, ill take it.) 5 ) Install 3d Studio Max 5, and IGNORE CDILLA error at end of installation 6) Open Notepad and PASTE the FOLLOWING : Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\3ds max] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\3ds max\5.0] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\3ds max\5.0\MAX-1:409] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\3ds max\5.0\MAX-1:409\AdLM] "InstallerType"=dword:00000019 "Type"=dword:00000019 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\3ds max\5.0\MAX-1:409\AdLM\42] "SerialNumber"="" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\3ds max\5.0\MAX-1:409\source] "InstallLocation"="C:\\Temp\\max 5\\3dsmax\\" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\3DSMAX] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\3DSMAX\5.0] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\3DSMAX\5.0\MAX-1:409] "uninstallpath"="C:\\3dsmax5\\" "SerialNumber"="226-19791979" "Version5"="5" "CurrentVersion"="5" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\Reg] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\Reg\3DSMAX] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\Reg\3DSMAX\5] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\Reg\3DSMAX\5\0] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\Reg\3DSMAX\5\0\0] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\Reg\3DSMAX\5\0\0\User] "osernum"="226-19791979" "dealer"="" "comp"="xxx" "fname"="x" "lname"="xx" 7) NOW SAVE the file AS : PenguinFOOT.REG On your Desktop 8) Open a Console Window and Type "Wine regedit" 9 )Click Registry Import Registry File, the Select PenguinFOOT.reg Click o.k., then close regedit 10) Open Notepad Again and Paste the Following : INCREMENT 43700CSTUD_3_4F adskflex 1.000 permanent uncounted \ VENDOR_STRING=commercial:permanent HOSTID=ANY ISSUER="Greek \ Gods Suck" ISSUED=05-aug-2002 ck=174 SIGN=E5E44206BD2E INCREMENT 421003DSMAX_5_0F adskflex 1.000 permanent uncounted \ VENDOR_STRING=commercial:permanent HOSTID=ANY ISSUER="Greek \ Gods Suck" ISSUED=05-aug-2002 ck=181 SIGN=B41669E0B66A INCREMENT FAKE_GOD_OF_TRUTH adskflex 1.000 permanent uncounted \ VENDOR_STRING=commercial:permanent HOSTID=ANY ISSUER="Greek \ Gods Suck" ISSUED=05-aug-2002 ck=156 SIGN=624DE8AAC52C INCREMENT FAKE_GOD_OF_PROPHECY adskflex 1.000 permanent uncounted \ VENDOR_STRING=commercial:permanent HOSTID=ANY ISSUER="Greek \ Gods Suck" ISSUED=05-aug-2002 ck=155 SIGN=D804EF445208 INCREMENT TRUE_GOD_OF_BULLSHIT adskflex 1.000 permanent uncounted \ VENDOR_STRING=commercial:permanent HOSTID=ANY ISSUER="Greek \ Gods Suck" ISSUED=05-aug-2002 ck=223 SIGN=3A1402D40A84 11) Save the File as licpath.lic ON YOUR DESKTOP 12) Browse to the 3d Studio Max 5 Directory\stdplugs DELETE or MOVE OUT "combust_select.dlu" 13) Now Run Max and Select Network License Mode when prompted. Select License File and Browse to the File you Just saved (licpath.lic) 14) You will be prompted to select a default renderer, select Software (aka heidi) or OpenGL 15) You are Now Running 3d Studio Max 5 in Linux. Enjoy. 16) Perform one Footed Penguin Victory Dance ( optional, but reccomended ) I chose the Name PenguinFOOT because I pictured a penguin placing its frosty foot up CDILLa's arse. Technique Derived FROM : http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/modeling-animation-276/3dsmax-5-windows-7-a-189455/ For those windows 7 users also feeling this pain. Runs smoothly on My crappy little Vaio, with compiz enabled. Cheerz.

Error
by SeriousAlexej on Tuesday February 19th 2013, 16:04
I've installed 3ds Max 5 (without any C-Dilla errors) and at startup it says "A licence error has occurred. Please" blah blah, restart your system. Nothing helps. Does anyone know what to do?
Change in install steps...
by Christian Mills on Monday December 31st 2012, 15:39
A small change... more of an edit:

In step 2, the list of items to install in Winetricks should have an "icodecs" not a "Tcodecs"...
