[c74] The max installation appears to be broken

    Nov 16 2009 | 5:03 pm
    When trying to load a m4l patch inside live this error appears inside the device window:
    "The max installation appears to be broken."
    however the path to max inside lives preferences is correct and max seems to work fine as well.
    I completely erased all traces of max and live and reinstalled only the two current betas. btw: I own the licences for both max5 and live8.
    i am running osx 10.6.2 on a new macbook pro.

      First, please make sure you are using b9 of both Live and Max.
      When Live calls the Max app to start for the first time, we need to copy all the frameworks from the Max app over into the Live app. Sometimes permissions problems prevent this, an issue we hope to address in a future release.
      For now, control click on the MaxMSP app and select "show package contents". Navigate to inside the Frameworks folder and copy the four frameworks folders you find there.
      Now control click on your Live b9 app and select "show package contents". Paste the contents into the Frameworks folder you find inside there in the Contents folder. If there isn't one, please create it first.
      If it still doesn't work, please get in touch with cycling74 support.
      Please note that we are monitoring this list and the Ableton forum so you shouldn't need to cross-post.
      Thanks very much

      Hi Andrew
      thank you very much for your quick reply. It works fine now.
      Maybe its because my normal user account has no admin rights. I prefer to have it this way in order to know what is beeing installed or changed on my computer.
