MXJ Does't work with MAX 5


    Oct 28 2010 | 5:04 pm
    I have a serious issue with max 5 and MXJ… nothing works.
    max always says: "Unable to create JVM"
    Although it does work with max 4.6…
    Here's the max.java.config.txt:
    ; This is the config used by Max when instantiating the JVM ;
    ; Comments are enclosed within 2 semicolons ;
    ; The file format is relatively fragile so pay attention ;
    ; when editing this file !! ;
    ; some example options one may use ;
    ; add all jars in /Users/topher/java/lib to the system classpath i.e. immutable classpath ;
    ; max.system.jar.dir /Users/topher/java/lib;
    ; add /Users/topher/foo to the system classpath i.e. immutable classpath ;
    ; max.system.class.dir /Users/topher/foo ;
    ; these next 2 are typically what you would want to use if you want additional directories ;
    ; added to your classpath for max ;
    ; add /Users/topher/myclasses to the dynamic classpath of MXJClassLoader ;
    ; max.dynamic.class.dir /Users/topher/myclasses ;
    ; add all jars in /Users/topher/myjars to the dynamic classpath of MXJClassLoader ;
    ;max.dynamic.jar.dir /Users/topher/myjars ;
    ; specify some jvm options ;
    max.jvm.option -Xincgc
    max.jvm.option -Xms64m
    max.jvm.option -Xmx256m
    ; uncomment these options(i.e. remove surrounding semi colons ;
    ; to cause the JVM to be created ;
    ; in debug mode and listening for remote debugger connections ;
    ; on port 8074. This would enable you to interactively debug ;
    ; your mxj code using JDB or some other debugger which supports ;
    ; the JDI wire protocol ;
    ; max.jvm.option -Xdebug ;
    ; max.jvm.option -Xnoagent ;
    ; max.jvm.option -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,address=8074,server=y,suspend=n ;
    ; max.jvm.option -XX:-UseSharedSpaces ;
    ; max.dynamic.class.dir /moi/Mes_patchs_Jitter_patches/fluid_particle_simulation/ ;
    ; max.dynamic.jar.dir /moi/Mes_patchs_Jitter_patches/fluid_particle_simulation/;
    ; max.dynamic.class.dir /MaxGoogleTalk/bin ;
    ; ; max.dynamic.jar.dir /MaxGoogleTalk/bin ;
    Max5/Cycling74/java/mxjpreferences.xml doesn't exist ! Would it be the solution of my problems ?
    10.5 last version of max 5.
    Thx,

      So if you type mxj into a new object, ignore the error, and get help on mxj; what happens?
      Are you tying to run stuff from fluid_particle or maxgoogletalk? They are commented out? . . .
      More info needed?

      When I try to get the help, it gives mxj general help nothing else, no link to my object…
      And yes I discover the problem in trying to run fluid-particle…
      Don't know what to do…
      What do you mean by conmmented out ?
      Thx fo your help;

      open your terminal and type
      java -version
      what is the version that is printed?
      might be that you need to update java?

      Hi
      This part
      ; max.dynamic.class.dir /moi/Mes_patchs_Jitter_patches/fluid_particle_simulation/ ;
      ; max.dynamic.jar.dir /moi/Mes_patchs_Jitter_patches/fluid_particle_simulation/;
      ; max.dynamic.class.dir /MaxGoogleTalk/bin ;
      ; ; max.dynamic.jar.dir /MaxGoogleTalk/bin ;
      which would add all the enclosed classes and jars to the search path; except they are commented out as per
      ; This is the config used by Max when instantiating the JVM ;
      ; Comments are enclosed within 2 semicolons ;
      Whit the help thing if a window came up doing animated text and fades etc, then MXJ is fine, read up a bit more on its setup and paths and the requirements of the fluid particle simulation package
      Cheers
