I've just installed a RME HDSP MADI card into a PC which has just this
morning had a fresh install of Windows XP SP2 (3Ghz P4 in an Asus
P4C800-E motherboard, Radeon 9600XT graphics card). When I try to run
Max/MSP, the splash screen gets as far as "initializing etable" and
then it crashes, disappearing completely, with no error message
whatsoever. The RME drivers are the most recent from the RME website.
Google reveals no known issues with this set up.
In a quick test, Plogue Bidule seemed to work perfectly with the card.
Has anyone experienced anything similar with Max? Is there any useful
log file I should look at?
