4.5.7 Install Problems, Windows

March 10, 2006 | 3:03 pm

I installed the 4.5.7 update and took all the defaults – downloaded the "full" package for WinXP. Lots of problems. Max opened, but… The installation emptied my entire C:Program FilesCommon FilesCycling ’74 folder and subfolders. I restored, and MAX opened again, but a New patcher only contained a handful of objects in the palette, and the File preferences dialog was an unusable mess.

Help, please – I have a nonfunctional system now.

Oh yes, another clue – it doesn’t look like any new documentation was installed – that latest what’s new file I have is from 11/05. So something else in the installation went bad.
