4.6 folder confusions…?

Well, the first thing is that 4.5 and 4.6 shouldn’t (AFAIK) be in the
same folder. The Cycling74 folder (externals etc) now resides inside
the Max folder, rather than in App Support. You’ll need to move or
copy your 3rd party exts & help files into the new folder. (Well, you
could point 4.6 to the existing folders, but I think it would be
neater to put everything in the same place.)
If you have duplicate objects, I would just look at the modification
date and see which are the most recent, and delete the others.

If you mix both installs without reading the docs about the differences
(also many times discussed on the list), you should expect and get desaster.

Best is to reinstall 4.5.7 and 4.6.2 to the default locations then you
will have both versions available… (Trash your mixed-up chaos install
before completely)
