I am new to posting to this forum, so forgive me if I have breached protocol in how I am presenting the problem or attaching the patcher data. It appears (at least to my admittedly limited knowledge) that a snapshot file cannot be created from a standalone. In the full version, the patch works fine and creates the MAXSNAP file in the desired location. In the standalone, nada. This is true when using a message to the thispatcher object, or when using the JS API code included in your help file. If anyone can advise how I am in error, or if this a bug, or if you know a workaround, or if this is just the expected behavior.
To see the save routine work in Full Max, run the patcher code copied below. The Snapshot files are created and saved as expected.
I am using Max 7.3 on Windows 7 and Windows 10 64-bit machines.
