Recently, I downloaded 3ds Max 2010 and it was working fine but suddenly I received the following error message saying “The software license check out failed”. I have searched for the solution but there was nothing to solve this issue so I extremely need your assistance to fix this issue as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance.
The software license check out failed. Error 20.
Autodesk 3ds max 2010 license error
The message you posted is not one you should see on the startup of the trial. The trial is a "standalone" license, locked to one PC Probably you purchase a "network" license which is shareable among users on a network. "Checking out" is a feature of the network license, by which you can take it home and use it offline.
The trial is a full, unclipped version of the product, so if you make certain key changes in your setup, you may confuse the software into thinking it's running on a different PC; it's very hard in software to detect what the outside of the case looks like!&;. Changing your boot drive is one of those changes.
