This is not true for me. I did these for fun:

and even used [rtcmix~] on Windows, which is relatively flaky. Both
standalones seemed to work well on a number of Windows machines. I ran it
once for about 5 hours at home.

If the patch you are trying to build into a standalone contains the period character twice, like my.foo.pat , then the standalone will not work on Windows.

This problem is a deep and nasty one that we shall have no quick fix for. Apart from that there are no problems with building apps on PC that we know of. Perhaps an example patch might be in order?

Is this also the case if the patch contains externals with two period
characters in the name?

Thanks,

it’s only if the name of the standalone has two dots.

Sorry if that wasn’t clear.

Check out

cycle~.help.exe for example.

files inside the standalone should be fine.
