Error on Max7 startup on laptop (2nd install) : resolving alias?


    Apr 08 2016 | 2:38 pm
    I am trying to install Max7 on a laptop (for live performance of my lovely patches)... but it fails to startup with a stacktrace error pointing to Max's fileref_resolvealias routine, actually inside Carbon code: dying in "CFURL_CreateWithFilesystemRepresentationByAddingPercentEscapes" I have looked for and removed all network aliases I can see on the laptop...no joy. Any ideas where else to look? This did not get far with my initial contact with C74 support: they just got frustrated (with me) and recommended a complete wipe and reinstall on the laptop. I am hoping for a more insightful approach here, ;-)... or just confirmation that I am likely scr**ed... Any ideas? Thanks! CharlieB aka J2K

      OK: For those who are interested (*yawn*), it apparently was one of three apps I uninstalled : WebGuard / or AntiVirus from same dev or Unibox mail application
      all three from Apple app store, all gone, and Max is back. who cares what was the real cause? I am back in business...er... play! Svaha! j2k
