    The projects I was working with in 3ds Max 2017 are crashing Max when I trying to open them. I stepped away and put them aside over the summer. Now, they will not load. I have not changed anything. Max launches and I can even start a new project, but if I try to open a current track build, I get "An error has occurred and the application will now close. No scene changes have occurred since your last save."

    I have tried creating a new project and merging. Even tried merging only certain objects (or only geometry, shapes, groups/assemblies). No luck.

    I would hate to lose all of this work. Any ideas? Thank you!

    I've had the same problem with 3dsmax 2012 a while ago and could solve it with using the latest plugins.
    Go to the folder
    ..\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\Support\Tools\Plugins\Max 2017\x64_beta
    copy the 3 files and replace the ones that you currently use in 3dsmax 2017

    Hi guys. Same problem here, i mean random problems.
    Max 2017 reinstalled and files on folders as usual.
    Sometimes when i try to open files, CTD. Sometimes i can load track and when i click a mesh, CTD. Sometimes i can load a track, clicking a mesh, load material and CTD when clicking gmat slot. Sometimes i can do everything and CTD on save. Sometimes a windows pop up that error, Max will close and try to save...
    I have tried Max 2012 and does not work at all.
    Any suggestions, please?

    Did you copy over the latest plugin files as above? And is your 2017 patched to the latest version?

    Yes. Max updated and latest plugins from my rfactor 2 folder. Sometimes everything works perfect, the problem is that unstable and annoying behaviour.
