Max/MSP Software Development Kit


    Feb 05 2007 | 12:58 pm
    Hello list. I want to configure my PC to work with MaxMSP-SDK, and I setup Visual Studio C++. Will it work with the SDK? Because I tried to build a few paradigms and I didnt succeed. It generated some errors concerning header files (i.e. windows.h) that I couldnt find in any of the folders. Does anyone have any clue about this? Thanks a lot.

      I'm not sure how windows.h got in there anywhere. To get from a fresh install of Visual C++ to compiling one of the example externals in the SDK, the most you'd have to do is make sure that the directories:
      insert_path_herec74supportmax-includes
      and
      insert_path_herec74supportmsp-includes
      are in the list when you do:
      tools->options->Projects and Solutions->VC++ Directories->Include Files
      and also
      tools->options->Projects and Solutions->VC++ Directories->Library Files
      Apart from that, just load the solution and build...
      If this doesn't solve any problems, then you might mention exactly what steps you took in trying to compile an external (which example?), and what error message concerned windows.h

      Thanks for the reply.
      I have done all the include files. I have just loaded 01. plussz example, and this is the error message:

      The file richedit.h should be found in C:Program FilesDevStudioVcInclude
      If it's not there, you probably need to re-install your copy of VC++. If it is there, be sure that you have this path in your include path.
      Also, check the order in which you include the folders. Visual studio mfc/atl includes should come before the max/msp specific folders.

      does the file richedit.h exist anywhere on your disk?

      No I dont think I have seen it anywhere, this is the first time. I assume this header exists in all the examples and that normally I would be able to run it. But somehow it doesnt succeed in my current configuration - and it is weird because I have just formated my pc and installed the service packs (1 and 2) as usual.
