Uninstalling Max 6

October 31, 2011 | 1:09 am

I´m having a lot of problems with my Max 6 (crashes, bugs, etc.), and I want try to re-install but uninstalling first my previous installation. I have also Max 5 (I want to have it yet), and I would like to know exactly what have I to delete if I only want to uninstall Max 6.

I have an MB Pro with OSX Lion (10.7.2)

Thank you very much and best regards!

Delete your Max6 folder in


And delete the preferences folder which is

~/Library/Application Support/Cycling ’74

This will clear Max6 out

Thank you very much, but if I delete the preferences, will Max 5 work?

Thanks and best regards.

Yes Max 5 will work. The Max 5 preferences are stored elsewhere.
