You should convert the mesh to a .x file. Given the $2500 price tag of 3D Studio Max, I am assuming that it will do the conversion; personally I use gameSpace.

The SDK samples altho not brilliant do show you how to get an .x file loaded into DX9 with VB.NET

3ds max doesn''t have a built in .x exporter but you can download a plugin to export .x files here.
