cycling 74 folder in Library/application support


    Dec 02 2006 | 4:49 pm
    I have duplicated folders (externals, init, java, ... ) :
    - in the Applications/MaxMSP 4.6/Cycling' 74
    - in the Library/application support/C74 Plug-in Support
    which must be the only one to keep
    jitter-externals for example are not in the Library/... one
    may it explain my Max 4.6 crahes when I try to launch simple openGL examples like jit.p.shiva
    my config (can be seen in detail in the crash.log attached ):
    PPC bi-pro G5 , 3 GRam , Max version 4.6.2 , Jitter 1.6.2

      If you are only using Max 4.6, then yes, remove the /Library/
      Application Support/Cycling '74/ folder. The crashlog indicates that
      an old (Max 4.5.x) version of pak is being loaded in preference to
      the one in the /Applications/Max 4.6/Cycling '74/ folder.

      I removed the folder /Library/Application Support/Cycling '74/

      Yes, you still have an old version of "pak" on your hard drive. Just
      do a search for "pak" and I'm sure you'll turn it up.

      OK, thanks Jeremy,
      a "pak" was in a /pluggo support/Mode_externs folder
      Removing that file from there seems to resolve the crash problem.
      Is there any other known old-version externals that may produce crash ? that could be good to know for a deeper cleaning ?
      thanks a lot
