Max for live license

Post by 0lgarythm » Sun Oct 16, 2016 4:02 pm


I'm currently trying to work on max for live.
I know that I need to start the software inside ableton. I put a max instrument and then click edit.
Max opens, but saving is disabled stating in a green box "trial not started - saving disabled"
Clicking on that box I can create/login to a cycling 74 account, but there is also writted below the page "Max for Live users: Please start the Max for Live editor by editing a device in Live"
But it's what I do. I'm not opening max by shortcut but inside ableton. I tried reauthorize live but no improvement. Is it normal ?

Thanks in advance

Have had the same problem since the last update.

Have to restart Live a few times before it allows me to save a patch.
