Not entirerly certain what you are asking?

It could be that you are trying to register/activate a program that has already been registered/activated? Since 3dsmax is only licensed to one user per serial, are you pirating software?

We do not offer assistance for pirating software

it gives u 2 options activate the product or run the product i want to activate it. i did so on my girls pc and the registration screen came up and was able to follow it to end and registered it. but i,m also trying to obtain a license on my pc but on my computer when i click to activate it the screen comes up with nothing but a 2 bullet bulleted list. you can click on the bullets as if you were selecting another option but it does nothing. On my girls it shows thereg screen on mine it shows that. my question is y and how to fix it not a pirater just need program license cause i'm a student in the 3d modeling field. ty and any tips or things you think it could be would be great thanks again

I do not know what mechanism that program uses for activation, but it could use a hash on the cd that will not allow the program to be activated twice.

Your intention may be noble, but their antipiracy feature cannot know that.

It could also be simply your scripting host is crapped up...downloading and reinstalling the scripting host might fix that

Thanks but i figured it out,not really but i solved it. theres a portable ulity license and if u export the license file and then import it on the pc u want it on it works perfect. Still dnt no y it doesnt show up. I had already fixed it before i read your post but i downloaded that scripting anyhow figure i might as well be up to date. Thanks again you guys r great keep it up.
