The installer loads, and begins to run through the steps to install
What does not
Direct X installation fails, but the installer ignores this. It then tries to install .NET, which also fails. At this, the installer aborts.
What was not tested
All use of the application.

Autodesk no longer support download links for 3dsmax9 so I will provide the links from my archive, contact me and I will send you a link to a trail version.
To get 3dsmax working and running.
If running from 64bit do
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winecfg
Do not install any winetricks repos the first time around with a clean wine prefix as with some versions max will install first time.
winetricks msxml3 msxml6 dotnet20 cc580 vcrun2003
env WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winetricks msxml3 msxml6 dotnet20 cc580 vcrun2003
When running the 3dsmax.exe installer de-select metal-ray satellite and continue as normal with the install process.
This works for wine version 1.6.2 with Ubuntu 15.04 32/64bit
Use the license import utility to transfer your windows 3dsmax9 license.
If 3dsMax9 doesn't work try this.
Fix: Use OpenGL as graphics mode.
1) Save a new .reg file with these informations:
2) Type "wine regedit" in a shell window and "import" the .reg file previously saved.
3) Type "winecfg" in a shell window and check "Emulate a virtual desktop".
4) Type "wine 3dsmax.exe -h" and
choose OpenGL as graphics mode.
first time running of max will show a tutorial window; make sure you check the box "Don't show this again".
