"The selected Max application could not be loaded. A 32-bit version is probably required."
- Live Versions: 8 - 9
- Operating System: OS X
When trying to install Max for Live on OS X, Live does not detect the installation, instead I get the above error message.
When the Ableton Live Installer .dmg is still mounted, the preferences that bridge both Live and Max for Live are incorrectly set.
- First uninstall Max completely using this guide making sure to remove the local preference files, as described.
- Then, please make sure to eject the Ableton Live installer .dmg before installing Max again. This will ensure that the correct preference settings are installed.
