Install MAX (new to Mac)

Post by neuron132 »

First time mac user. Can someone tell me how to install MAX? I am running OX X 10.5.5, and I have downloaded the tarball. Thanks,

Quite easy.
1. Double-click the downloaded file (Max-0.8.1.tar.bz2), to uncompress it.
2. Notice the show up beside it.
3. Drag and drop the into your /Applications folder.
4. Double-click the to launch it.
5. Enjoy! :D

I can't seem to get Max to run. I download, extract, run delete preferences (even though I didn't have an earlier version installed), and then run the Max app. It appears on my Dock, bounces once, shows the white dot under it, and then...nada. I think this is an error message I got from console:

12/3/08 11:35:28 PM Max[393] -[FileConversionController loadWindow]: failed to load window nib file '/Users/thomasszromba/Desktop/Max-0.8.1/'.

Can anyone help? I'm new to mac and really want this to work, but it's frustrating. Thanks!
