3DS Max Error and Solution
« on: Feb 03, 16, 11:43:30 PM »

If you happen to have more than one version of 3DS Max installed, and you uninstall one of them, sometimes it will make the remaining Max error on loading. It would be something like this: DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005

What happens is that when you uninstall one copy of Max, it removes MaxComponents.dll from the registry, even though you may still have a copy of Max that requires it. All you need to do is run a command prompt as Administrator (cmd.exe), navigate to your Max directory (mine for example would be: cd C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 2016)

Once your command prompt is in the Max directory, type in:   regsvr32 MaxComponents.dll
Restart Max and your problem should be fixed.

Here is a thread that explains it, but not for 3DS Max
