windows standalone with icon only

I understand that: When you create a standalone application on Windows, you’re actually creating a folder containing the MaxMSP Runtime executable plus…but even with a spiffy icon you’re still stuck with an ugly folder containing the executable AND lots of other junk. On the Mac standalones all that ‘other junk’ is neatly hidden ‘behind’ the icon.

Most windows apps, like those for Mac, are a single icon you can double-click on. Is there a way to do this on Windows? Can you hide the files they don’t need to see or install them someplace?

Thanks in advance,

Christopher

I know the message I’m replying to is a year old, but I would really like to know the answer to Christopher’s question. Is it not possible to create a Max standalone app in Windows that consists of a single icon, without seeing all the other confusing things in that folder?

Not to my knowledge, unfortunately.

Okay, thanks, Dan. I was afraid of that!
