max5 crash on start


    Nov 12 2008 | 10:32 pm
    Hi List, MAX keeps crashing on start. i was working with it all day with no problem. Came back home from work and max won't cooperate :( i have been working on a heavy patch and experienced some sluginess during the day , other then that i cant ive any more specifics. i was stil on version 5.0.3 when this happened tonight. i did the upgrade to 5.0.5 in the hope it would help with no luck. a rapid help would be much appreciated as i have rehearsals scheduled for tomorrow. so far i did a PRAM reboot, disk repairs and trashing the preferences with no success.
    macbook pro osx 10.4.11
    here is the crash report : /*thanks in advance */

      does max just hang on start-up, showing not even the top toolbar commands?
      in that case i suppose it is a pace-related issue and you should simply mail support [at] cycling74 [dot] com about this.
      hope it helps!

      thanks Jayrope, alas max crashes right away, not even the time for the toolbar to show up :(

      well, to me it seems, that mailing the cycling74 support about this would be a good option n the first place, unless you'd have reason to believe, that the trouble comes from elsewhere.

      I strongly suggest you inform c74 support of this as they need to know this kind of stuff. Their support people are responsive. tm

      Did you ever get any help with this? I'm using the demo version of MAX 5 and had it crash big time...can't get it to start again...tried reinstalling and everything.
      No dice.

      I'm using a sony vaio 1.2 ghz PC running windows XP. The thing is that MAX was running fine, until it crashed in the middle of a patch. Now if I try to start it up it gives me the demo dialogue, and then the windows error report.
      Thanks in advance for any help.

      I got the help from cycling74. I had to delete a bunch of stuff manually and then reinstall. Everything works great now.

      I received a mail from cycling and they advised me to do the following (it's for winxp):
      1. Go to the Add or Remove Programs applet in the Control Panel. 2. Remove all instances of Max5. 3. Make sure the Add or Remove Programs applet no longer lists any of MaxMSP or Jitter in the list of installer programs. 4. If anything is left in the following folders delete: - c:Program FilesCycling '74Max5 - c:Program FilesCommon FilesCycling '74
      also do a full reinstall of quicktime and make sure you have the latest version of it and the latest version of max5.
      for me it didn't work, I placed back a ghost image....but trying won't hurt...
