So, i did the upgrade to 4.6 finally. Once i did this i
noticed that some of my patches were still loading 4.5 at
start up. Annoyed from being so drowsey and having screen
burn, i pulled the 4.5 icon into the trash and threw it
away. Then i proceeded to play with my patches, to test
out what 4.6 has to offer. To my surprise 80% of my help
files would not open, i would get a life preserver tube
icon that said
" The selected URL is: file:///Applications/MaxMSP
but nothing would open. When i went to get info, i was not
able to select max, i even went and pulled the plist
(luckily the date modified was big help for my cranky
brain), yet no victory. Alot of my externals, despite
being in the right folder are not reading either (i was
enjoying the granola~ before thsi mayhem ensued).
i am very frustrated, searched the max forum, but couldn't
find out anything that worked for me. Any of my fellow
maxers can help me out before i through my computer out the
window like a big baby?
i know 99% of the time it is usually an human error, but
this experience (not my first upgrade), just reinforces my
theory that i should stay away from incremental updates.
digital tears and melted brain.
