Max for Live "Trial Not Started - Saving Disabled"

  • Live Versions: 9
  • Operating System: All


When opening the edit window in any Max for Live device, an error messaged is displayed saying "TRIAL NOT STARTED - SAVING DISABLED".

This occurs because the Max application has previously been started in standalone mode. Unless you already have a separate license for Max, this triggers the trial process. Max never needs to be started in standalone mode, it's always opened from within Live.

In order to solve this issue, you'll need to uninstall Max completely and then reinstall a fresh version of Max from your User Account.
