Thanks, I tried but:

"This is not a valid page. Use the navigation to the left or try a Search below. If this does not solve the problem, please contact the Website Content Manager ( and provide the page URL you are trying to reach."

It could be that I tried form 5.0.8 bit I would like to see a log before updating.

Could you maybe provide me with the correct link.

Works for me as of now.

Good for you, are you on 5.0.8?

It’s still not working here, I see it’s not easy (maybe impossible) to give the link but I would like to know if it’s the case that you have to download 5.1 to read the log?

After hiding the 5.0.8 folder, you could install 5.1 without repercussion, and try if your patches work.

Yeah – has anything changed in 5.1 that affects things besides Max4Live? I can’t find an explanation anywhere. Lets just give cycling a little bit of time to sort things out. They came out with new software and a new website all at the same time :)

Maybe someone can just copy (or make a screenshot) from the info you get there and post it on the forum for me?
