Opening patches with both Max6 and Max5 installed

November 29, 2011 | 12:36 am

I just got Max6, but I still want to have Max5 installed since I want to be able to use Cosm (last I heard, the Cosm externals aren´t ready for max6)

My problem is that all patches that I copyCompress or download get saved as Max5 patches… even if I go to properties and try to change the "opens with" option (i.e. navigate to Max6, Windows doesent reqognize the change and still the "Type of file" is : Max 5 Patcher (.maxpat)

I am using Windows 7 64

Is this a known problem with Max 5/6 (when both are installed) or is this a problem with Windows7 ?

All the best

You can copy compressed a max 5 patch, and use "New from Clipboard" from max 6 and it works fine. Not sure what the problem is?

thanks… Yeah its not really a problem, if I just open from Max 6

I guess it is a windows problem, that I can´t change the type of file in properties

All the best
