Polygon Cruncher is available as a Utility Plugin.
Please have a look at the help (Using Polygon Cruncher for 3DS Max / Autodesk VIZ entry) file to find the way to access it.

Here is the help content:

1- Run 3DS Max / VIZ.
2- Select 3DS Max Utilities plugin tab (1 on the image below)
3- Click on More button (2 on the image below)
4- Select Polygon Cruncher in the utilities plugin. If the plugin does not appear please follow the instructions if the Polygon Cruncher does not appear in the plugin utility list section below.
5- Polygon Cruncher opens.

Polygon Cruncher does not appear in the plugin utility list

If you don't see in the plugin utility list, Polygon Cruncher might be unloaded. In this case:

Check you have polygoncruncher8_**.dlu in your 3DSMax/StdPlugs folder.
If you use 3DS Max 2012, you should find polygoncruncher9_2012.dlu.
If you use 3DS Max 2008, you should find polygoncruncher9_2008.dlu...

If you don't find this file, Polygon Cruncher is uncorrectly setup. Please setup Polygon Cruncher application again in administrator mode.
Run 3DS Max
Open Customize/Plugin manager in 3DS Max menu.
Look for Polygon Cruncher in the list.
If the status displays unloaded, right click on the plugin list and select Load New Plugin function.
Select polygoncruncher9_**.dlu in the 3DSMax/StdPlugs folder.

Let me know if this explanation is sufficient.
