3DSMAX 9 error: The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)

Hi to all TechyV readers and experts,

I hope I am posting in the right section, well anyway, whenever I  open 3DS Max 9, I get this error: The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). My only option is to click OK to terminate the application.

I am using Windows Vista and I have a great rig, processor-memory-and-video-card wise. This is a freshly installed 3DSMax. Maybe something went wrong with the installation, I don't know. Can anyone please give me some advise.

I would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.

I don’t think you have an incompatibility issue here because Windows Vista is pretty much supported by Autodesk 3ds Max 9. Try uninstalling Autodesk 3ds Max 9 and then install it back. This will fix any corrupted files in the installation and will also restore its settings back to default. Try it again after reinstalling the application. If you still get the same error, restart your computer and then open Autodesk 3ds Max 9 again. Don’t open any other application besides this one. Make your computer exclusive for Autodesk 3ds Max 9 so that it can use all the available resources on the machine especially the RAM.

You may also try checking your computer for any possible errors. Use a disk utility application when checking the system. For a much thorough diagnostics on the system, use a disk utility application like Norton SystemWorks, PC Tools Performance Toolkit, or Norton Utilities.
