First, is your nwmax folder in the scripts folder labeled "nwmax" (without the quote marks, and lower-case)? Secondly, did you set your 3ds Max to run as administrator? If not, then close 3ds Max (if you haven't saved, then save your work) and make those changes. After that, start up 3ds Max again and, after opening your file, try exporting again.
