Max Timer Object Doesn't Work

When i try to create the timer object, it is pink and has no inputs or outputs. When I look at the help-file for it, the object is still pink, has inputs and outputs, but does not work at all.

Any help would be appreciated, attached is a photo of the help-file.

You have either erased the original file for [timer] object or you have created another file and given it the name “timer” and it is in Max’s search path.

the only user defined path i have added is the desktop, and there are no max files present there – attached is an image of the max-externals directory with the timer.mxe file present, as well as an error log showing that the timer object does not exist.

Am I missing something?

I’ve solved the problem – turns out it searches to the bottom of every directory on the desktop, and i had the arduino development environment in a sub-folder on the desktop which contained a file named timer – moved the sub-folder and the timer works now.

Thanks for the help!
