Thinking of buying macbook to test my maxmsp application on OSX and Windows XP

Hi,

does any one of you tested with success/failure maxmsp on winxp on intel
map (installing winxp with boot camp) ?
Is maxmsp copy protection system working?

I haven’t found a clear answer to that question in the lists.

Thanks,
Chris

NB: i’m only interested on reports from testers, don’t need any endless
comments.

do you think it is possible to install two windows partitions?
(because in fact, I’m using two PC : one for testing with maxmsp and
generating exe, one for testing in user environment, to find out missing
files).

PACE copy protection works with a truly booted version of XP (as is
the case with bootcamp). It will *not* work with XP running in a VM,
but MaxMSP runtime will work in a VM (though note that OpenGL is
typically emulated in a VM). Personally, I am successfully using a
MacBook for both OS X and Windows development via boot camp.

my guess is it’s not possble. you aren’t allowed to have multiple
partitions prior to installing boot camp. so multiples of windows are
probaby out as well.

the apple boot camp forums may have a better answer for you though.

while I dont have bootcamp or an intel mac, it is my understanding
that bootcamp only allows for one partition, however, you *could* use
a virtual machine to host multiple XP installs.

Im not certain how Max runs under a VM however.

Id suggest a mac forum for the best solution, like Arstechnica,
macnn, etc.
