Help with creating standalone application

I need to make a standalone application that runs on both OSX and as the most common current Windows versions.

The app needs to play .mp3s, so I am using the jit.qt.movie object as the playback device. My questions are:

1. Will a standalone app created on OSX work on Windows or do I need to build a separate version on a Windows Max/MSP machine?

2. What Windows OS will a Max/MSP standalone work on?

3. Do I need to include any particular .jitter elements to the build or will these be included automatically?

Help gratefully received.

1. For creating a windows version of your standalone, you need to make the standalone also on a windows computer. The standalones are platform dependent. Watch out if you use graphics, you will need to change the searchpath
2. I only have experience with XP, so I don’t know about different windows OS
3. I think ytou have to add the -jitter libraries to the resources folder

I’m also interested in building a WinMax app right now, so a couple more
Q’s:
Will WinMax run under Parallels? I’m still on 10.4 so I can’t use Bootcamp.
And presumably there’s no need to authorise WinMax if you just want it to
build Windows versions (ie. in trial mode Max will still build apps OK), but
if I did want to authorise it, does it count as part of my MacOS licence, or
would I need to purchase another ?

I just tried installing & running Max under Parallels/XP, and it crashes
Windows every time – bummer. Anyone actually managing to do this ?

Latest versions of Max & Parallels, Windows XP Pro SP2, OS 10.4.1
Cheers

Hi Julien, Roger,

Our license agreement states that you may authorize multiple personal
machines (or boot disk installs), regardless of the OS, as long as the
software is only running on one at a time.

All the best,

I just tried to launch Max in Parallels today (WinMax 4.6.3, iLok, latest Parallels/XP and Mac OS 10.5.1) and also got the Windows-crash-every-time behavior. Has anyone had luck getting a similar setup to work?

I really haven’t even begun to play with Max 5 yet — is it still necessary to build standalones on the desired OS in Max 5?

Thanks,
EH

If you mean compiling a OSX app on OSX, and Win on Win, that’s still the same. You can’t compile Win on OSX, or OSX on Win.

Also, I had problems compiling an app in WinXP in demo mode, but when i authorized it with the ilok, it compiled fine. Just in case anyone else was wondering.

You need to make sure first to install all XP updates, otherwise max will crash indeed. Last week I successfully managed to produce two apps (4.6) for both platforms. The only thing that didn’t work for me is the appicon / appsplash thing, but I didn’t mind too much as anyway the result for windows isn’t an app but a folder.
