where should I put original mxe file on my Windows xp PC??

January 25, 2007 | 11:59 am

Hi!!
I created my own external object the way the document in the maxmspsdk folder says. And, my original object(.mxe) is created at C:maxmspsdkmax-projectswin-output-debug. Where should I put this object? How to make Max recognize my original object as a object like print, metro ,…?
Please tell me some advice

hi,
it doesn t really matter where yuor object is….the important step is to let max msp know its location.
to do so:
– go to Option
– then File preferences
– click Choose
– now browse up to the folder containing you object.

Alternatively you can put your object in the ‘external folder’ provided.

I hope that helps

Thank you, torrejuseppe.
I did what you said. And theres no error when I open MaxMsp but I can’t find my object in the New object list. Is there any other way to use my original object??

Hi!

C:Program FilesCommon FilesCycling ’74externals

if it is your Common Files Path

Then you have to install the object, in the "file" menu in max…. select the file you moved to the last directory!

Restart max and…

It works for me!

the ability to use your own object is not tied to it’s appearance in
the new object list.
if the object is in max’ search path you can invoke your object by
typing its name in a blank object-box. a lot of people (like myself)
never even use the new object list.

i order for your object to appear in the new object list you have to
add a textfile to the /Cycling ’74/init/ folder. by convention you
should call it "yourlib-objectlist.txt".
the textfile must contain a line of text per object reading the
following:
max oblist your_category your_objname;
have a peek at the max-objectlist.txt in said folder to get a better
idea what it looks like.
