    Hi guys and girls,

    I have had an issue ever since I went from W7 to W10. 3ds Max 2010 would keep stuffing up the veiwport and leave a ghost image where the popup screen was. Pain in the A.

    So today I stumbled across a fix. So simple. Have a look at the video. It is not English, but what he does is dead simple and so far works.

    Copy the 3dsmax.exe and save it as a copy. Do not touch or rename it. It will be 3dsmax - Copy.exe for example.

    Go to the short cut and change it there to the correct .exe. Load max and it should work.

    Here is the video;

    Surely not.. The logic of why this work defies me... i have to try this

    EDIT : Well it works for me.. I cant see how running the same executable code that read and writes to the viewport the same way by running a copy of it gets a different result.. But it works.. I wont complain
    Thanks heaps

    I dropped the tip in this forum months ago, you just need to press Windows Key + D twice and the ghost pop-up goes away.
