Load an application inside a Max patch?

Hi all,

Is it possible to load an application (.app/.exe) inside a Max patch/standalone? The forum search isn’t giving me much…..only loading VST’s.

You can launch an external application using the [shell] external but you can’t embed an external application in a patch.

It is possible to embed an application in a standalone. This is a method to launch it:

– Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. –

With the “launchbrowser” message to the Max application (see http://cycling74.com/docs/max5/vignettes/core/messages_to_max.html ), you can launch a browser, but also open any file with the default application.
