New install. Crashes instantly.

    Hi,
    I am (finally) a new Max user. Unfortunately, the app crashes immediately on launch on my OSX 10.8.4 laptop. Anyone seen this crash before?
    Here's the crash dump: http://pastebin.com/B3kL597g
    Thanks.

      Out of curiosity, what is your hard disk named? E.g. "C74" is a special path name that could lead to this kind of crash.

      Ah, very well spotted. It's an encrypted inner volume that appears to be called ":".
      I didn't set that up, but I can see it being a problematic string. Thanks for your instant reply!

      Excellent! Easy work-around: moved Max to a (sensibly named) DMG container.
      Now running. Thanks for your help Joshua.
