      You shouldn't have any compatibility issues. If you are using external serial devices or audio input, include a menu so you can select it easily. Yesterday I tried to demonstrate a patch to my tutor on a windows machine which contained a Serial object. I'd put "a" in the parameters of the object so it used serial port a for my device, but of course on his machine it was different, and as he was only using the runtime, I couldn't edit. I had to go find a machine i could edit it on, and include a menu for selecting serial ports.
      And just in case, save your file as both a binary file and a text file. Better safe than sorry!

      Does anyone tried to use one fw camera towards two computer, using a firewire hub ? Or any other solution to use the same dv input with two computer in the same time ? Thanks. Eric

      Is either ridiculously tricky or ridiculously easy. You could try bodging together your own two-way firewire splitter (but remember, only use ONE power input! Or you WILL damage your camera) Some knowledge of digital signals is needed. Worse case scenario, you need to regenerate the signal for the second computer using shift register ICs (in which case you need a clock pulse working at the same rate as the data transfer). That's the best advice I can offer you.
