Max/MSP + Windows + GS Wavetable Synth + Limited User Account = no sound

Hi all,

Any idea why this is the case? It appears it may be a simple issue of
permissions but other apps work perfectly fine under the same account.

Namely, if I start Sonar for instance, under the limited user account (read:
student account), it accesses Microsoft GS Wavetable synth fine. But if I do
the same in Max/MSP, there is no sound coming from Miditester patch or any
other custom-made patch that uses internal Msft synth.

While I am aware that the internal synth is for all intents and purposes
useless, I still wonder what may be the problem. I also tried different audio
drivers in the DSP settings but that made no difference (ASIO, WDM, MME).

Any ideas?

Best wishes,

Ico
