Max For Live will not launch editor after Max6 demo expired

March 24, 2013 | 6:14 am

MacOS 10.8.3
Max for Live 5.1.9
Live 8.4
Max 6.0.2

I was previously using Max 6 as my editor for Max For Live. Then I went ahead and did the 30 day demo of Max 6. That demo has now expired and now I can’t get Max Fro Live to launch the Max 6 editor. The screen just flashes and Live’s status says it’s "Starting Max Editor".

If I switch back to Max 5 for the editor, things work as expected.

FWIW – trying to use Max 6.1 as the editor gives me an error that it’s unsupported. I can’t find any support messages on that topic.

Max 6 in Live 8 requires purchasing a Max 6 full version crossgrade.

Max 6.1 in Live 9 does not require owning a full version of Max.

Max 6.1 requires Live 9 and vice versa, as discussed in the frequently asked questions for Max 6.1

Thanks, I think your very concise response should be a FAQ answer. I wasn’t very clear on those points after reading and re-reading support info and FAQs. Then again, maybe I’m slow. :)
