can't open max patches from finder only from max itself

    Jan 05 2011 | 2:27 pm
    i've got the following problem:
    when i try to open a max patch from finder (osx 10.5.8) nothing happens.
    i can only open patches if i start max first and do it via file >> open...
    this has started after one my patches crashed several times because of its rewire settings
    but now every other patch is affected, too. i tried to reinstall max already but no change.
    anybody got a solution for this problem?
    i'd really appreciate any help!
    thanks &
    best regards,
