Building Exe Appicon

    Nov 24 2011 | 7:08 pm
    can anyone run me through how to build an exe appicon in max 6? doesn't seem to be the same as max 5 was... also the exe that builds, is this secure to pass around without anyone being able to see my algorithms?
    seems like when i open a build file it opens in max 6 as though i want to edit it, can other users open it like this too?
    i'm a little bit confused and the tutorial on the forums is for max 5/.

      i have just built an .exe to test this for you ( build collective/application and then I have to select build and then save as type .exe)
      i then go to the exported folder and double click on the .exe and it opens in what seems to be maxruntime. i cannot edit it. there are no dsp settings.
      this test was on max 5.1.9 and xp 32bit.
      if you wish to hide your workings...maybe find a way to lock in presentation mode?or password protect a sub patch?
      please see my message regarding dsp if you are having trouble.
