Nick, the DirectX 7 SDK has this utility. You can download the SDK from Microsoft.  If you'd be willing to post an email address, I'll email the 3ds utility programs to you.

conv3ds hasn`t changed during the last DirectX Versions i think. but its actually no longer provided with the DX-SDK packet since DX8.0.
For DX8.0 it was possible to download a "Extras-Pack" which provided the conv3ds x-file converter among some other tools. this will work with DX9.0 too, of course.

i found the link on microsoft:
FileName: DX81b_SDK_Extras.exe
Source  : [url]http://download.microsoft.com/download/DirectX/extras/8.1b/W982KMeXP/EN-US/DX81b_SDK_Extras.exe[/url]

hope that helps you.

you're right... and STILL RIGHT, the package WAS include with directx7 sdk and no more included in directX9 because now, the utility is provided with the Caracter SDK of 3dmax (3d Studio Max by Discreet)
however I was unable to download caracter sdk from Discreet, probably not a free item and 3ds max  cost 3500 US$  so...

THANKS A LOT BIG time for the directx8.1 Extra package link, you SAVED MY LIFE !!!
