I've got Windows XP a few weeks ago...I know it's a bit late :P
After running 3Ds Max 5 a few times, I noticed that the "Selection Set" button and the "Render to Texture" dialogue ain't working.
It only opens a window with some MaxScript code..
I've been trying to run MaxScripts, which I've never done before, but I think when there happens nothing on my viewports..maxscript must be damaged.
Macro Recorder doesn't work as well.
I have re-installed 3DsMax again, but still same problem. Perhaps I shouldn't have installed 3DsMax in the same directory...?
Well, it's not a really great problem...but I'm wondering why it has been working on Windows98 and if somebody knows about it.
I will install 3dsmax5 in another directory soon, I'll let you know if it works then..
thanks for any help.
