Thanks to all for the faster than usual work on much needed fixes. Hopefully it gets even better.

noticed Shane is also keeping out of the gunfire also (for a good while now)... good move to create a TEAM BLOG, so these guys don't get a PERSONAL whooping everyday from max problems.

There is a reason Shane hasn't been active (not going to go into that here). He should be back around in a few weeks, or so, I am guessing.

Sorry i forgot to mention, but is the issues with Backburner 2012 (and 2011) addressed?
I see no mention of it in the release notes. Perhaps this issue is not relevant to 3ds max but Backburner itself..?

Some tips if you have problems installing the hotfix:
- like dark_m? mentioned make sure you're using the right version of the hotfix: 3ds Max vs 3ds Max Design,
- also note that there are different versions for the different language versions of 3ds Max/3ds Max Design: English, German, French, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese,
- to rule out problems with access rights, reboot and log in as the local Administrator,
- to rule out conflicts with other applications, stop all other applications including system tools like the virus scanner,
- make sure you system is fully updated (Windows Update/Microsoft Update).

re:so I uninstalled 2011 and tried it again. It is not recognizing Max 2012, and "Open with" does not work with it either

When you uninstall 3ds Max (any version) it causes problems with the Open with command. I would look for a file association manager tool if you are using Vista or 7. You should be able to then reassociate the file types as needed.

Hi BigGyeahThatsM3, we'll create a new blog post to go over uninstall issues that way it'll be visible to everyone and not hidden in a comments thread.

If the message is about installing when you try to uninstall that tends to indicate a registry corruption issue, you may want to try using a registry cleaner to resolve that. The other things to try:
- to rule out problems with access rights, reboot and log in as the local Administrator,
- to rule out conflicts with other applications, stop all other applications including system tools like the virus scanner,
- make sure you system is fully updated (Windows Update/Microsoft Update).

Also make sure you have the latest Microsoft Installer installed (search for Microsoft Installer on www.microsoft.com).
