I've been getting a type -39 error message every time I try to open Max
(3.5.8). I tried a simple install on top of the existing file and it
didn't help. I didn't try removing all the opcode files and starting the
install from scratch--yet. Presumably that would work . . ? Anybody know
what caused the error? Could it have had something to do with Norton's
antivirus software (which seemed to be screwing up other things on my
machine until I uninstalled it)?

According to my reference, a Type -39 error is a Macintosh File System
Error meaning: eofErr - Logical end-of-file reached during read operation=
=2E

This might suggest that your file directory system has been corrupted
and is in need of Norton Disk Doctor.  If this is the case, simply
copying another copy of Max on top of the old one is not likely to
produce any change.

Or it might not be the copy of Max.  Perhaps the Preferences are
damaged, and when Max tries to open, it gets an eofErr.  I'd try
Norton Utilities and trashing the Preferences, to start with.
