Default [HELP] Autodesk and .3ds files

Im running Windows Vista 64 bit and got

- Autodesk 3DS Max 9 32 bit
- Autodesk 3DS Max 2009 32 bit
- Autodesk 3DS Max 2009 64 bit
- Autodesk 3DS Max 8
- Autodesk 3DS Max 2010

And i still cant open any .3ds files!? Any help? When i try to open .3ds file, it starts 3ds max 9 and just gives the following error "DLL <C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\3ds Max9\stdplugs\Dxplugins\DxDDS.bmi> Failed to initialize. Error Code : 998."

Im really trying to learn how to model and this just focks it up :S

Are you using file>import rather than file>open?

Thats odd, as 3ds files are normally backwards compatible. Where did this .3ds file come from?


3dsmax9 / Vista problems http://forums.cgsociety.org/archive/index.php/t-472293.html

Could be your issue?

Just install SP2 pack and it should work fine (install the pack in the same language as your "licence")

make sure your exporting the model as a .3ds and not just saving it as a scene then trying to open/export it in the other versions.

I made this dumb mistake >.>
