A question about opening MAX-files. After updating MAX 5.0 to MAX 5.1.1 i can’t seem to open MAX-files from windows explorer. Before this i could just open the files by double-clicking them. Now after double-clicking my computer begins to rattle and "pretend" it’s opening but nothing happens. Has anybody else encountered this? And if so, how did you tackle it.
Question two- When installing updates, is it necessary to unistall the previous version or does it automatically overwrite?
"Before this i could just open the files by double-clicking them."
Where were you double clicking on them, in the explorer window? the Max
It is not necessary to uninstall previous updates.
Thanks for your response.
Before installing the update i could open files by just doubleclicking them in a (windows)-explorer window.
If i want to listen to music, i open the folder where the mp3-files are located, i doubleclick on one and it automatically opens Winamp (which i use) So windows knows what program to open corresponding to the file being clicked upon.
But when i want to make some music (using MAX) i go to the folder containing my patches, i doubleclick and nothing happens. Now i’ve tried to "reconnect" the .maxpat to MAX using "rightclick" > "open with" so u can tell windows which program to open and it’s still the same. This problem happened only after installing the update.
Opening files in the MAX-browser and FILE-browser works fine. So it’s more a matter of convenience but after a while it becomes tedious to have to go to all the folders to find "that one help-file" you need.
