I'm running a few recent minimacs (Mountain lion 10.8.3) for an installation.
At the start I run an application made with automator, which adjusts volumes etc and open the patch win runtime.
My problem is that if I don't quit max runtime properly before turning off the computer, when re-starting the computer, and opening max runtime via the automator application, it will open 2 instancies of the same patch.
I will need to use the programming to turn off and on the minimacs so I won't be able to quit runtime before I turn off the macs.
Did anyone experience a problem like this? I unchecked the box "Reopen windows when logging back in" that appears when I turn off the mac, and checked the box "close all window when quitting an app" in the general settings. It seems this happens only with max runtime.
Maybe there's a feature in max that allows to close every other patch when a patch is launched?
thanks for your help,
