This crash is annoying. I had been using Max/msp for awhile without a hitch and then one day I open up Max on my Windows XP comp and while "initializing interface" a popup message goes up saying that "Max/Msp has crashed! Would you like to save a diagnostic file?" I searched the mail list and what things I found didn't seem to have an answer (tried reinstall, waited a long time (30 min) for max to try and load but failed, and I'm not sure of where my prefrences folder is (I checked both the Cycling '74 folder and the Common files folder and neither of them had a 'prefrences' folder.) Any insight on this would be wonderful. Oh and by the way the runtime version does open so this may be some sort of an 'aliasing' (don't know what that means) problem.
