Max [WinXP] doesn't start any more

Hi all,

a very strange problem occured over night: Max doesn’t start up any more.
When I double-click the MAX-icon, the harddisk loads a little bit, but after a few seconds, it kind of freezes. No window is opened, there’s no more reaction.
In taskmanager I see a CPU load for max.exe of 50%, which stays stable until I force quit the process.

I didn’t change anything in my system – it was all working properly. All other audio-applications are still working.

Even Max Runtime is working without any problems.

So I thought, it could have to do with the ILock key.
I tried to reinstall (first repair, then uninstall…), both Max and ILock Drivers, but it didn’t change anything. I even did a recovery of the cycling74 folder with a former working state, but it didn’t change.

Has anyone an idea, what could cause the problems?

My System:
XP Prof. 2002 SP 2

Hi Martin,

If the runtime is starting without error, this would indicate that it
may be a PACE related issue.

I would recommend trying to download and install the latest iLok
drivers, found here:

https://www.ilok.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/iLokManager.woa/4/wa/DownloadApps

If you are still having difficulties, please email support at cycling74
dot com and we will get you straightened out.

All the best,
-Ben
