Requirements for MXJ development on Windows


    May 14 2007 | 11:04 am
    I may need to teach some Windows-based MaxMSP users basic mxj
    development, but I'm entirely Mac-based myself. I'm assuming they
    already have MaxMSP 4.5 or 4.6 installed on their Windows machines
    and I want to get them up and running with an [mxj quickie] straight
    away. i.e., compiling classes as well as running them. Could anyone
    clarify exactly what is needed for java installation on windows (with
    a link to the right download if possible) and any problems that might
    arise depending on different setups?

      You should just be able to install max and the latest jdk from sun
      and all should be fine.
      Also, as far as quickie goes, the next release of max fixes the
      problems on OS X where
      compilation errors were not appearing in the compile window. Thanks
      to JKC!
