Saving a Patch and All Referenced Files

I made a change to a Max Device, actually a max for live device (maxuino), and I want to be able to export just the .amxd file and have it work on any computer. What I changed was a bpatch referenced by the device (a patch in a bpatcher object). So, when I save just the .amxd file, and bring that to a new computer that does not have the updated bpatcher file, I do not think that it will work right.

The updated bpatcher file is in Documents/Max For Live Devices , in a folder with the new file name NewMaxuino (or whatever).
In that folder there are things like “Code” “Discarded” “Externals” “Media” and “Patchers.”

My question is how do I compress, or export the .amxd file so that it contains all the updated Patchers, or .js files.

can’t you do what you want with each relevant subpatcher ? i mean save and export all the patchers you need.

Yes but my question is, how could I save everything to one file, one patch so, for instance I could email you just one patcher, and it would contain all the sub patches, so that I wouldn’t need to send you several files.

Or, if I did want send you one patcher and several subpatchers, where would I save the sub patches to make sure they are correctly referenced by the file.

If I make changes to maxuino’s m4l device and only send you the .amxd file, would you also get the js and boat her files?
