I can find the appropriate files and how many there are in the folder, but if I read the jxf into a jit_matrix object by passing its filename I get a "jit.matrix can't find file ..." error. It works in the patcher, but if I create a standalone .mxf or .exe I get no response. I've tried different pathtypes and styles and running as administrator, but there is something wonky about how jit.matrix reads external files because I CAN manually select the very same jxf file I want via the file selector that comes with the read() function but not passing it as a string or message! Nor does jit.matrix a JXF when I run the patcher from a Runtime window.
I even tried it with Java. Create everything within an mxj but jit.matrix will not read my string-based filenames in a standalone. So annoying. I can't really buy another copy of Max just because I can't get this to run on its own!
What is the difference between pathnames in jit.matrix in the runtime vs the patcher?
