New install. Crashes instantly.

Hi,

I am (finally) a new Max user. Unfortunately, the app crashes immediately on launch on my OSX 10.8.4 laptop. Anyone seen this crash before?

Here’s the crash dump: http://pastebin.com/B3kL597g

Thanks.

Out of curiosity, what is your hard disk named? E.g. “C74″ is a special path name that could lead to this kind of crash.

Ah, very well spotted. It’s an encrypted inner volume that appears to be called “:”.

I didn’t set that up, but I can see it being a problematic string. Thanks for your instant reply!

Excellent! Easy work-around: moved Max to a (sensibly named) DMG container.

Now running. Thanks for your help Joshua.
