BONUS CHAPTER 1: Installing and Configur... > Registering and Activating the Softw...

Registering and Activating the Software

After Max is installed, you can start Max using the desktop shortcut or the Start menu, but Max requires that you register and activate the software through Autodesk for permanent use. The software continues to run for 30 days without activation, but after 30 days it quits working.

An Activation screen appears when you start Max after installation. Using this screen, you can launch the Activation Wizard or run the software unactivated for 30 days. The Registration Wizard automatically appears when you select the Activate the product option and click the Next button.

The first screen of the Registration Wizard lets you get an activation code or enter an activation code if you have one. To obtain an activation code, you need to enter information such as your name, address, and company name. You also can specify whether this copy is an upgrade. If you're upgrading your Max version, you need to include the serial number for your previous version. The Serial Number and Request Code are automatically filled in using the numbers you entered during the installation. You can authorize the software using a direct connection to the Web, fax, e-mail, or regular mail.
