Problem running 3ds max 5 in Vista (cdilla.dll)

Hi people,

I've recently downloaded 3ds max 5, and I install it as a trial version because I don't have the CD-Key (will get one later).

The problem is, after the installation, whenever I click to open the application, I get the following error messages:

''Error: loading cdilla.dll !!''

and right after

''The software licensing system was unable to select a license. [Error 5]''

I've got 2 friends who downloaded the same exact file and got it to work, but they're both working with Windows XP. That's what makes me think it's maybe a Vista problem, given that I use on Vista.

Any answers will be appreciated, I'm waiting for a savior D:
