Manual Deauthorization of a machine? I've reached my 3 machine limit.
Sep 19 2015 | 4:26 pm
I'm working on a patch on a client's machine, so i thought I could just use my account to authorize the machine save the patch. However I seemed to reach my 3 machine limit. I tried to clear out the authorization (and other pref files) for Max 7 in ~/Library/Application Support/Cycling 74' on an older machine, and open that machine's Max 7, and it said it wasn't authorized anymore. However, the machine itself seems to still be in my account, because the machine limit error didn't disappear.
As a temporary fix, i created a throwaway account and registered a 30-day trial and then was able to save. I guess I could do this indefinitely and keep on creating throwaway accounts, but it'd be a lot easier if I could manage which machines are authorized.
-also why did cycling 74 choose to use the term "machine" instead of "computer"? is this a hint at future implementation of Max in things other than computers? :D
