After Build, App is not opening (MAC only)

July 24, 2011 | 12:38 am

Hi all,

after creating a simple app (only showing a comment and a panel) I cannot open this app on the machine with the following specs:
Snow 10.6.3
MacPro4,1
Quad-Core Intel Xeon
2,66 GHz
Cores: 4
Ram: 3 GB
Please download the program from here:

http://www.tryek.de/content/mmx_test_franke.zip

I built the app on a MacBookPro, Snow 10.6.7, 2.5 GHz, Intel Core 2 Duo, Ram 4 gb
Max 5.1.8

The console is giving me the message:
com.apple.lauchd.peruser starting child process com.cycling74.com.com.Max.mmx_test_franke.appRuntime Result: Permission denied.

I already did a change on the App with Apple+I and changed the rights to RW to everyone, recursivly

Can anybody reproduce this?

Thanks in advance
Johannes

Nice program! It works for me (well, I can see a "A TEST" message and a dark green panel).

A couple of years ago, building an .app on another partition than the boot one created an unusable application (cause by a permission problem, just like you – the solution was to apply some chmod u+x thru the Terminal on the runtime stuff).

Since then I always build my .apps on the desktop and move them afterwards although I had the feeling this bug was corrected.

Hi,

thanks for trying. Yes the program looks like that.
As I mentioned, I changed the permissions, but I will check again.

Thanks

You need to make sure the executable bit is set, not the RW, which is something that can’t be done thru OSX’ info panel. You need to do that in a shell with chmod.

yes, I try chmod -R 777 bla.app
thanks!

It seems to me that is a frameworks issue,
try to reinstall maxmsp and recompile your app.
( do a backkup first of maxmsp folders and files)

Hi balam,
thanks for your advice, I will try so.

Probably your comment is based on an interpretation of the crashreport.
Would you be so kind and give me a hint how you got to this conclusion?

Saludos

Hi all,

does anybody have a Mac Pro Quad and may try the test app
http://www.tryek.de/content/mmx_test_franke.zip
for me?
It looks like built apps on dual core with Max 5.1.8 are not running on Quads…

Thanks for your help
Best
Johannes
