Max not Starting Anymore ;(

April 13, 2011 | 9:53 pm

Hi,

Today I was using Ableton and Max 4 Live when suddenly the program crashed. ok, no sweat, it’s happened before. I open Ableton live, all good, load any M4L device, crash. Reboot. Try to open Max. nothing. Uninstall, install Max. Try to open Max. Nothing.

How can we make Max start working again ASAP?

Hi,

Try trashing your preferences, and if that doesn’t help, send a note in to support (support at cycling74 dot com) with your OS details.

On Vista/Win 7, Preferences are stored here:

c:UsersYour usernameAppDataRoamingCycling’74

(Please note that "Application Data" is an invisible folder and may need to be made viewable.)

On Mac, Preferences are stored here:

~/Library/Preferences/Max5 Preferences Folder

Can I marry you? :D

That totally worked for me. If this would have happened before a show, I would have stormed into Cycling 74 HQ hatchet in hand!

What a careless bug…
