Error 20 on installing Autodesk 3ds Max 2011

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I just upgraded my OS to Windows 7. I lost all the software and drivers so I have to re-install everything including Autodesk 3ds Max 2011. The problem is after re-installing, the Autodesk 3ds Max 2011 in Start menu was changed into “Change Graphical Settings”.

When I double-click to open it, the program will start to load and will last for few minutes and ends up with a pop up error as posted below. I uninstalled the software and try to re-install back but still get the same problem.

What can I do with it?

Autodesk 3ds Max 2011

The software license check out failed.

Error 20

You are getting a software license check out failed error. It is possible that the license key of the application has already expired if you registered it before.

But if you haven’t registered it yet, this is maybe the reason why you can’t use it. Check the compatibility of your operating system with this version of Autodesk. Read the information above for the details.

If you have already used this application on the previous version of operating system before upgrading to Windows 7, you might want to consider going back to the previous version of Windows.
