I just got a new 15 inch Retina 2.4GHz computer on Wednesday. I happily reinstalled Max5 and Max6, and all my extra externals and everything was working fine.
That was until this evening, both Max5 and Max6 refused to launch. I deleted and reinstalled Max5, restarted the computer, tried everything and didn't work.
On a weird hunch, I reconnected the Thunderbolt adapter (I now need Thunderbolt adapters for Firewire 800->400, Eithernet for motion sensor and everything :(
All of the sudden not only Max5 launched but also reopened the patch I was crashed with, and everything is back to normal again.
Is this mysterious symptom known to happen? I don't want this happening to me just before the concert; it's heart-attack inducing :) Any pointers welcome!
