error at startup : can't find authorization file

hi maxers,

does anyone ever had this error when starting max ?
something like “error #43 : can’t find authorization file”.

max did that three or four times, and then, started normally.
now it seems ok…

should i be worried about my hard drive ?

After installing 5.1.3, I had this problem too, and then it worked normally.
I don’t think we have to worry about that…

+ 1

only happened once, i woke computer from sleep and got that error msg. it went away on relaunch of max app… i’m not quite as relaxed about this as fakegolfer, and i REALLY dont want this happening before a show!

i’m wondering if there are any iLok / PACE issues?
perhaps, it might be an idea to post authorisation methods / system specs:

key: challenge and authorization
OS: osx 10.6.3
