I'm trying to write an MSP GUI object on Win32. I've been working with the stuff provided in the SDK, and I think I'm following all the directions, but I keep getting crashes. I get no errors on compiling my .mxe. I put it in the externals folder, and Max seems to recognize it, but when I try to instantiate it Max just vanishes. I get no errors on screen or in any of my syslogs; the program just disappears like it was never running at all. This seems very odd to me. Anybody have any ideas? I know writing externals on XP has some additional complications, but I would think I would get some kind of error.
I don't have the code on me to post at the moment (will do so later if needed), but I'm really hoping for a general explanation - I must be missing something obvious, I think.
