I started using 3DS Max 2010 trial version a few days back and I have a problem with the unwrap button. Whenever I press the unwrap button, I get a licensing error displayed. I checked and verified that I have a valid trial license and I am well within the 14 day trial period. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling a couple of times and this did not improve my situation any further. Then I ensured that I logged in as administrator and disabled the firewall before installing and tried again. Installation completes without a glitch every time. But the minute you try to click the unwrap button, this error comes back again. I checked all the system requirements for 3DS Max as well and found that my system meets all the recommended requirements. Now what else could be causing this error? Please help me out. Thanks a million to whoever comes up with a solution.
Licensing error: The system cannot find the file specified.

Check again your system if Autodesk 3ds Max 2010 is compatible with it. If your computer is running on Windows 7 and higher then there is no use installing the software. Autodesk 3ds Max 2010 only supports Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 and higher 32-bit or 64-bit, and Windows Vista [Business, Premium, and Ultimate] 32-bit or 64-bit.
For the hardware, the requirements are not that high so I’m sure you won’t have a problem in this part. The smallest amount of RAM you can run Autodesk 3ds Max 2010 is 1 GB but the recommended is 2 GB. The supposed required internet browser for this version is Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 and higher but if we’ll look at your screenshot, I’m sure your Microsoft Internet Explorer is higher than version 6.
If indeed you are running Windows 7 or Windows 8, the only solution to use Autodesk 3ds Max 2010 is to downgrade your operating system to either Windows XP or Windows Vista which I’m not sure if you’ll like. Or if you don’t like downgrading your operating system, you can upgrade to Autodesk 3ds Max 2011 until 2013 version which works on Windows 7 or Autodesk 3ds Max 2014 which supports Windows 8.
