3ds Max 2009 Error Plugin/ Error Code 998/ Error Code 126

I'm working on 3ds max 2009 when I noticed my vray plug-in is not configured properly (no vray sun, no vray blend etc.) so I try to solve it I uninstall vray and reinstall it, but unluckily it wasn't successful for how many doing that I get tired. Right then afterwards, I tried to open my 3ds max but before max's icon showed a dialog box pop up saying ''DLL {C} Program Files/ Autodesk 3ds max 2009 plugin/ vray render 2009.dlr} failed to initialize. Error code 126. The specified module couldn't be found.'' after that another dialogue pop up, the same thing but this time the problem is in other plugin Error Code 998. Even thou I can access max I couldn't render, it's automatically close the program. I unstall and install the 3dsmax as well but the same result I got...Could someone help me to fix this problem. Tnx!

SOURCE: 3ds max autodesk is not opening in windows7 ultimate

some software my not be directly open in windows 7 yet, (like if u c, when u install AutoCad 2006 on Vista Ultimate u can't open it directly, 1st u have to right click on it then Run as Administrator, then it will be open and work) like this prob, i sure that u have to right click on the icon of ur software then run it as Administrator, i think it will open. and your problem will solve..
otherwise your version of 3DS Max is not compatible with Windows 7 and you have to install different version of Windows (Like Xp).
good luck.

How to fix Registration-Activation Error 0015.111 Autocad2010

The reason for this error is the product key u used. I mean autodesk 3ds max has FOUR different product keys 128x1 for 3ds max, 495x1 for 3ds max design, 774x1 for entertainment creation suite premium, 661x1 for entertainment suite standard.[x=A/B/C/D/E/F depending on the year].
so reinstall the autodesk product, use a different product key( Try all these four one at a time), one will definitely work.
same thing happened to me for maya 2014, but solved it using a different product key
