Max for Live doesn't launch

  • Live Versions: Live 8.1 - 9
  • Operating System: WIN

Symptom

Max for Live does not launch, user gets a 'Code: -7' error.

Reason

There are a few anti-virus and firewall programs (such as “Panda”) that are incompatible with the PACE anti-piracy software that is bundled into Max. The only remedy is to suspend or uninstall the anti-virus or firewall. PACE is aware of the conflict, but unless they decide to provide a fix for it, there's not really anything we can do to avoid the conflict other than recommending the disabling of Panda.

Solution

Uninstall Panda Global Protection 2011
