Small build issue

March 16, 2010 | 9:13 pm

Hi

I have a small build problem, I have an error in my .app when I launch it which says:

>error: max: doesn’t understand "object"

The description is a bit vague and everything seems to work fine, is there any way I can trace what object max is having an issue with?

This is the max window log when I build which has no errors:

Hi

So I’ve gone through my patch, the bits likely to have issues and paired it right down and discovered that compiling a patch with nothing generates the same error. The max window output now reads like so:

Starting Build for test.app…
Processing script…
Investigating MidiSetup Input.pat…
Saving Patcher MidiSetup Input.pat…
Copying External umenu
Investigating MidiSetup Output.pat…
Saving Patcher MidiSetup Output.pat…
Copying External umenu
Investigating MidiSetup Buttons.pat…
Saving Patcher MidiSetup Buttons.pat…
Copying External panel
Copying External ubutton
Investigating DSP Status.pat…
Saving Patcher DSP Status.pat…
Copying External panel
Copying External umenu
Copying External adstatus
Copying External radiogroup
Copying External spray
Copying External uzi
Copying External ubutton
Finished script.

I’ve opened all the listed included patches and they open without problem, no broken objects, and I’ve tried creating all the objects listed which all create without problems so no corrupt .mxo’s.

At a bit of a loss as to what the problem is, has this happened to anyone else here?
