erratic find of basic objects

January 30, 2008 | 6:35 pm

Hello

I have, well, I undergone rather a erratic behavior of Max (4.6.3)
on a Macbook pro (OSX 4. 10) since one year now.
Sorry I posted already at this time but I don’t find the thread.
So:
When I make a patch, and when I try to put some audio object
like line~ noise~ adc~, you see basic objects, Max don’t find them,
and send a missing object message. Ok, to resolve it I have to do a second or a third try and then Max find it. But it is not every time, sometime there is no problem.
And it seems that I am the only one on thne earth to have this
problem, so I feel alone.
I would really like to resolve definitely this.

first, I wonder if I should not remove the files "C74 plug in support" from the library /Application support
Is those files still usefull with Max 4.6.3 ?
because the externals files is still in the Max folder

any ideas????

(yes I trashed the pref, and yes I repaired the auth., like a good boy, but it’s seems to be a more vicious thing!!!)

You can thrash them, although they couldn’t really be the cause of the problem. It occurs when programming, or also when loading a patch? Upon successful instantiation you can hit cmd-I to see in the max window the path to the externals that were used.

I renamed that folder once and my Pluggo and parts of Java stopped working.

Only when programming, never when loading a patch
but I will try that, yes.

I will also try to put this external folder from the library
in the trash (temporarily, and see what happens)
