Crashing on loading

January 20, 2007 | 4:14 am

We had Max, MSP and Jitter running on our MacBookPro under Windows XP (using boot camp). After over a month, a separate problem caused windows to crash, and we had to replace it.
Now, although we removed mmj using the "Add or Remove Applications" tool, and reinstalled them, the new installation isn’t able to open.

MAX/MSP’s opening window does come up–for about 15 seconds. Then the white window with a message that Jitter was opening.

I have Java loaded.

Any suggestions on what this might be, or what I can do to debug this?

Thanks very much.

We’ve also added Symantec Antivirus when we reloaded windows.
Turning it off sped up the initializing of Max, back to the speed we had before. But still, once we get the "Jitter 1.x.x initialized" the window shuts and the program closes.

Are there any security settings that could be causing this?

OK–we can run Max/MSP on their own without a problem. The crash is only happening when Jitter tries to load. I’ll move this thread to the Jitter forum.

For those not on the Jitter list, I’m posing a duplicate response for
future users with this same problem.

Typically, under the circumstances you describe, this is due to a
problematic java installation (with Jitter 1.5 and later we try to
initialize Jitter Java support at that time). To test, I would
suggest you place a text file named jitter-config.txt in your search
path with the line "jitter java 0;" to disable jitter java support.
If this solves the crashing, then the Java install is most likely
responsible, and I would suggest you try ininstalling/reinstalling
java and see if that helps (to test, of course, you’ll need to remove
the java prohibiting jitter-config.txt from your search path). If
this does not solve your problems, I’d suggest the typical trash
prefs, uninstall/reinstall of Max/MSP/Jitter, and if still happening
contact support@cycling74.com for more detailed support.

Just want to confirm: This solved the problem.
De-installing then re-installing Java 2 RTE fixed the problem.

Thanks

Why exactly are you running Max/MSP/Jitter on a Mac under Windows? Is there another application that must run on Windows?

Sorry for the nosiness,
Brennon
