    UDK and 3D max Crash on start

    hi everyone!

    i have this weird issue in windows 8 (of course), i have installed Unreal Development Kit and 3DMax (any version) but none of them work, both crash just in the start up, UDK crash before loading the default packages and 3Dmax whe the main scree is about to apear.

    Did anyone have these issues?

    i already tested all version of 3DMax and all version of UDK.

    my specs are:

    win 8 Cosumer Preview
    Intel I-7 1.8GHz
    6GB Ram 1333
    Nvidia GTM435 2GB (latest Drivers for win 8)

    Netframework 2.5,3.5 and 4 intalled with updates and Win8 fully updated.

    Thanks for the help!!

    Windows 7 64-bit

    Hey, just an update on this problem. I'm actually experiencing this problem too with 3ds Max and UDK. Oddly enough, the problem only occurs with these types of editor programs and not games in general.

    This is actually an Nvidia driver problem. Any version of the driver past 301.42 seems to cause this problem when the dedicated graphics card is enabled. As of the current update, 306.23, this problem still isn't resolved, and since they're having security problems on their forums I don't see this being resolved any time soon. Your options are to revert back to version 285.62 (I think) or turn off the dedicated graphics card whenever you use one of these editor programs. Hope this gets resolved soon.
