Externals in Max 6


    Oct 29 2011 | 2:57 am
    ...my first post in this forum, so, hello everybody! I'm trying to get my externals from max 5 to work in max 6. For that purpose i simply copy&pasted my externals folder from the max 5 folder to the max 6 folder. but max 6 doesnt seem to recognize any of these externals. so i thought this might have been an compatibility issue with max 5 and 6, so i copy&pasted my externals folder from max 5 to a different machine, also running max 5, same licence key (both mac books, both OS 10.6.8), and also there no sign of the externals showing up. am i missing something? as far as i concern i simply have to copy&paste the external anywhere into the max programmfolder and it should work, right? worked that way for month on the first mac book with max 5. funny thing is also that when i open an associated helpfile in max, the external shows up properly there, also in max 6, but, as written above, doesent show up in a "regular" new patcher.
    any idea? i spent one day now trying to figure this out... cant be that hard, can it?

      And do I make them show up in the Object Explorer? Now there is no way to see the objects I use. In Max 5 I used to add the objectlist.txt files to make them appear.
