Standalone apps

Hi everyone,
Sorry if this is a re-post.
I know that on windows when you build a patch into an executable application, to run it you need max runtime. But on a mac, when you build the application, it creates a file name_of_file.app
Can it run as an application without having max RT installed? I only have one mac, with max, so i cant test it by myself!
Thanks in advance.

If I’m not mistaken is the RT copied into the .app file. So the app will run on any compatible computer without the need of max of max RT.

Hi, I am also interested into this topic. Danny, could you please explain what do you mean by ´compatible computer´. Thank you.

You only can compile the app for 1 platform…OSX or Windows from your computer. If you want to compile it for the other platform you need to do that on another computer from that platform.

Also the system requirements of the max version you use to compile the app are the minimum system requirements for your app. Thats all.
