failing to build a standalone

January 12, 2007 | 2:12 am

G4, Max/MSP 4.6.2, OSX 10.4.8

The result of an application built, even of an extremely simple patch, won’t run. Simply nothing happens when I double click the app. The same when I take it to another machine. After having built standalones for almost a decade, tonight I run out of options. Also in the archives I haven’t been able to find answers. This is the first time I try to do this since the update 4.6.2. Max46Topics.pdf says on page 17: It?s as easy as that. So what am I missing, what is going wrong. Any hints?

thanks

Hi Johan,

not sure what you mean by ‘nothing happens’ … if you get the
beachball forever, note that the default filepath changed to the folder
containing the standalone (= OS9 behavior), see

cheers, g.

This problem occurs if you build the standalone anywhere other than somewhere on the boot partition. The app won’t run because the Unix executable in the package doesn’t have its executable bit set.
