    This error can be caused by your graphic drivers. To know for sure, try starting 3DS Max with the "Change Graphics Mode" option found in the application folder (Start-Programs-Autodesk-Max 7-Change Graphics Mode).

    Choose the Software option (if you're running Direct3D, click the "Revert from Direct3D" button first, then choose the Software option).  If Max opens successfully, you'll know that your problem was related to the video drivers and can reinstall them.

    Good luck.
