View Full Version : Does 3dstudio max 9 work on wine?

September 1st, 2011, 02:50 AM

I was wondering if 3d studio max 9 works on Wine?

I was also wondering if you can do as much with Blender as you

Can with 3dmax9.

I would appeciate any feedback

I would like to stick with Blender but if 3dmax 9 is much better maybe I should stick with it.

I've never used 3dstudio max, but blender is pretty full-featured.

EDIT: According to this (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=8544), people have had mixed results installing 3D Studio Max using Wine.

I've been watching Youtube videos, clips here and there about those who got 3dsmax to run on linux but none really tell you how this can be done or for the fact this can be replicated for others.

I have been researching the possibility of getting 3dsmax 9 working on Ubuntu 10.10 as this seems a good place to start.

Maybe 10.04 or 11.04 but I will not be testing stuff that has anything to do with unity.

The most important thing to remember is you have all the windows dlls registered with wine to make your version work.

Running 3dmax from the terminal this can tell you what is missing and in some cases can be installed using winetricks.

Dotnet2, some needed fonts and some other dlls.

I will post my progress in a new topic once I have a version up and running.

Ok, lets get to work! - Edit Imageshack is a joke.

Digging into this more I get some wine bugs - for those interested in the console output look here - http://pastebin.com/qLmqcxbD

On and upwards - :)

Other needed stuff like msxml3 and cc580

I already have dotnet20 installed with d3dx9_26, d3dx9_39, devenum, dinput, dinput8, dsound, dxdiag, msscript, riched20

I know some of this looks overkill but I also copied the Fonts from the Windows XP's folder into the wine's windows Fonts folder as I have noticed a lot of other apps depend on these being there.

You opted in, so reporting 'msxml3 ' to the winetricks maintainer so he knows which winetricks verbs get used and which don't. Use --optout to disable future reports.

Ok now the main Setup.exe and directx 9c stuff next

Edit ----

err:richedit:ReadStyleSheet skipping optional destination

This will scroll continuously in the terminal when DirectX9c is being installed, My best guess was to wait this out - 7 mins later I get to the next window.

The Autodesk 32bit trial installer...

Read and Accept the agreement - Press Next and wait.

Edit ----

Name and Standalone - Press Next and wait for the window to change as at it goes dark for 4 mins.

Next window untick the following.

Help files.
Additional Maps.
Architectural Materials

Then press Next, Next and Next again..

Installer looked like it was doing well but now I feel like a Muppet, I am looking into these 2 errors
