Default Re: Vista Application Compatibility Thread

Anyone managed to install Maya 8.5 and 3D Studio Max 9 successfully in Vista? Last time I installed Max 9, I got startup error. I yet to install Maya 8.5 but I'm going to at this moment.

Update: When I start Max 9, error screen came up "DLL <C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 9\stdplugs\DxPlugins\DxDDS.bmi> failed to initialize. Error code: 998 - Invalid access to memory location."

But I can resume and use the program. I'm not sure what this error screen is for.

Update 2: Okay it appears DDS is other texture format based on DirectX, I guess I don't have to worry about it at least for now. Other than small glitchy viewports (to fix this, check "disable desktop composition" under compatibility mode option) I'm ok. Hopefully we see patch/update from Autodesk soon.
