I experienced similar problems with Max 6 beta. There was no known fix. However, I could often get it to work by right clicking on the Max icon, compatibility tab, then select to run the application as windows 7.
Also, check to see if Max is crashing and generating WER (Windows Error Reporting) reports. They could also be helpful.
Hey yall, so Im having the same problem. What exactly do you have to do to your preference files? Just delete the entire folder? or find the corrupt ones and delete them? Sorry dudes, computer noob here.
i have the exact same problem but with max 5. i for some reason got the idea "well maybe for some random reason, making a new account will make it work" so i did it and it did. iunno why, but it works. you should see how many accounts i have on my computers from it.
anyway. how long did it work for before it crashed? and any idea what triggers it?
Max wont start due to permissions problem. 'OS' simply not allow to lunch the app. Right click on the Max 6 shortcut or .exe file go to propertiesSecurity. Do the correct modifications to your account. Apply changes, reboot and I believe that's it. Problem solved. Well, hopefully... if everything was done right.
And of course I assume you guys know how to assign permissions safely.
