tap. externals not being found by Max. Problems with file tree?

I’ve been using Max for several years, and I’ve never had this much trouble getting Max to find an external library. The Tap.Tools library is saved in a subfolder of my main Max folder, and additionally, I have “tap.verb.mxo” in the portable folder for this particular Max patch. Even so, the Tap.Tools objects in my patch are “dark,” although I can still reference the Tap reference files by right-clicking on the object. Any idea why these externals aren’t working for me?

Yes ! I had a similar problem with my externals.
Clean out your preference folder in windows its :

c:UsersYour usernameAppDataRoamingCycling’74

Theyll be something equivalent in OSX.
just delete everything in the preferences folder. Restart max – reset file preferences to search including subfolders the folders where you keep your externals. Worked for me !
