update: I have now installed 3ds max 9 32-bit on the same workstation as my 64-bit setup. 3DxWare and 3DxStudio9 work as they should...
First, good news! I might get some work done!
Secondly, it might suggest there's nothing wrong with the installer. I think.
But I'm just speculating. Please fix this asap.
