Check that you have an [installdir]\StdPlugs\AutoCamMax.gup file. In the early days of the VC&SW they caused problems and the easiest way to correct the issue was to remove or rename that file.
My system shows all the VC&SW options greyed out - the correct text is there but the options are not available (I remove that file instantly after installation). If yours is not even showing the text then that may not be the cause and all the usual suspects need to be checked.
Did you install as Administrator and run Max at least once as Administrator?
Did you disable any firewall and anti-virus during installation?
Have you disabled Aero?
Is Max configured for DX9? (DX10 causes many problems)
Beyond that, I have no idea.
Max 4.2 through 2014, Composite 2014.
nVidia 9800GTX+ (512MB) (Driver 314.22).
i5-3570K @ 4.4GHz, 8Gb Ram, DX9.0c.
I have exactly the same problem.
I have the file. And its not showing any text.
-I’ve installed it and I run it as administrator
-I disabled all.
-I have XP, so no Aero
Hello, I removed theAutoCamMax.gup file and not the grey lines are gone. However, the view cube and steering wheel menus just show a lot of options that say “missing” and show numbers. How can i fix that?
