Max Runtime 32-bit on windows 8.1 – issues
I’ve sent a collaborator who doesn’t own Max a patch to run for a presentation, but he’s having trouble getting 32-bit Max 6.1.5 Runtime to work properly on his 64-bit Windows 8.1 laptop (64-bit Max doesn’t have the jit.qt.movie features we need implemented yet).
I don’t know the details of his problems yet, but has anyone else had success or failure running the 32-bit Mac Runtime on 64-bit Windows 8.1? Any pointers?
More details: he gets this error when trying to open 32-bit max runtime:
Faulting application name: MaxRT.exe, version: 126.96.36.19952, time stamp: 0x52713145
Faulting module name: unknown, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x00000000
Exception code: 0xc00001a5
Fault offset: 0x05a07bbb
Faulting process id: 0x1984

Faulting module path: unknown

and says he’s tried various compatibility modes as well, to no avail.
Just to follow up – it seems that he can run Max (in demo mode), but not max runtime or the max runtime .exe included with max.
The runtimes are working fine in 8.1 for us.
If you install debugview
You’ll be able to view Max’s startup sequence on Windows – perhaps there will be a clue in there somewhere
from my colleague: "Well, I downloaded DebugView as suggested, tried to open Max Runtime (32-bit), and looked at the last start call in the log. The last call was ad_load. My guess is that this is the process that loads all the externals in the folder "ad", such as ad_asio.mxe, ad_rewire.mxe, ad_mme.mxe, etc. And I suppose this is the process that is crashing MaxRT before it even gets to the opening splash screen. "
For me on XP 32-bit, I get path_buildcache right after ad_load. Maybe there is actually something wrong with that on his end…
 startup call: ad_load
 startup call: path_buildcache
