building for standalone…

April 5, 2011 | 9:48 am

my patch is ok
it works fine

it uses a database included in the folder of my patch, some txt files for confguration & the path of "thispatcher"

how can I proceed to build a safe standalone?
including txt files isn’t the solution because I want to be able to modify them after (I don’t want them inside the .mxf)
about the path? how can it work?

all infos would be appreciated !

just another note:
I want to send specific path to my objects.

inside an application, if I use a path like that "/folder1/text.txt", is it correct ???
I especially use JS which I built to be feeded by an absolute path (but a relative could be fine too)

I just read the http://cycling74.com/docs/max5/vignettes/core/standalone_searchpath.html but I don’t succeed in that.

any ideas?

hi Julien,
for standalones i find the "; max sendapppath" message useful. it gives you the path of the standalone application, it is not helpful when still patching!

yes but it can be implemented as the patching time and "become" useful when compiling standalone & using the .exe

thanks a lot Nikolas, it will help in a few minutes directly!
