Max/MSP + Windows + GS Wavetable Synth + Limited User Account = no sound

    Hi all,
    Any idea why this is the case? It appears it may be a simple issue of permissions but other apps work perfectly fine under the same account.
    Namely, if I start Sonar for instance, under the limited user account (read: student account), it accesses Microsoft GS Wavetable synth fine. But if I do the same in Max/MSP, there is no sound coming from Miditester patch or any other custom-made patch that uses internal Msft synth.
    While I am aware that the internal synth is for all intents and purposes useless, I still wonder what may be the problem. I also tried different audio drivers in the DSP settings but that made no difference (ASIO, WDM, MME).
    Any ideas?
    Best wishes,
    Ico
