Installation problem on Intel Mac - ezdac~ missing


    Nov 18 2006 | 1:31 pm
    So, having used the built in transfer function to transfer everything
    over from my Powerbook to my Macbook Pro ....
    I thought at first everything awas ok with Max, but then realised (or
    started getting) various error messages. So I figured the best thing
    to do was to wipe everything and start again.
    So I removed 4.6 with AppZapper, after copying all of my 4.5 & 4.6
    files over to an external disc for safety.
    Re-installed Max/MSP and Jitter (most recent installers).
    Now, whenever I try to launch max I get the following error messages ..
    error: can't fragload ezdac~ (missing), err-4
    and the same for ezadc~ and gain~
    If I do a Find for ezdac~ I find ezdac~.mxo and ezdac~.help , but
    that's it. ezdac~.mxo lives in the startup folder, so I guess that
    that's the replacement for ezdac~??? But if so, why is Max still
    looking for ezdac?
    What's going on!!???
    And what do I do to fix it?
    thanks

      I had the exact same problem and fixed it by trashing my preferences. I know it sounds stupid and that's exactly how I feeled after spending an evening trying to fix that by re-installing everything...Lesson here: always start debugging by trashing preferences.

      You can try to fix the permissions (see Disk Utility in the Uilities
      folder), it may help...
