Compile Max 6.1 external with MinGW x64

May 13, 2014 | 5:56 am


I have to create a Max external, and since I’m used to develop on linux and use tools such as gcc and ld, I’ve downloaded MinGW for Windows, both in x86 and x64.

When I compile for max 6.0 (in x86), everything works, I can use my external. But if I compile in x64 (from the Max SDK 6.1.4, with the x64 library) and then try to import the object in Max, the program freezes and I have no choice but to quit. I get the Windows exception code c0000005, which is basically a segmentation fault. I’ve tried with the examples given in the SDK to make sure I have no code error but it also didn’t work.

Does anybody know why this happens? It’s really annoying to waste time on this kind of problem.

Thank you very much!
