Sorry for a delay with reply. Was too busy...

Better way to bring up menu that allows to switch the driver that 3ds max uses
is this short command:

wine 3dsmax.exe -h

I tried to use OpenGL driver. Unfortunately, same result as with DirectX. I ran
above command again, and switched to software driver. And now 3ds max starts!
So this is what prevent it from starting up - some kind of problem initializing

Louis, was you able to start up 3ds max with OpenGL? And if yes, what video
hardware and driver do you have; do you see something in viewports with OpenGL

* * *

BTW, software driver is horrible - even in VMWare I prefer to use OpenGL driver
because it doesn't have glitches of 3ds max' software driver (of course, in
VMWare OpenGL use software rendering so it's SLOW), but at least it can start
in WINE and most of functionality in the program works perfectly! It is really
sad that at least OpenGL doesn't work for some reason...

I guess I need to file separate bug report for the problem with starting up
with OpenGL/DirectX driver (I think that they are related)... As well as for
other bugs (I found 5 bugs in WINE during my quick testing of 3ds max with
software driver); I will create separate bug reports for them (in next few days
when I will have more free time than now).

Thanks for your support!
