standalone application issue

    Dec 06 2016 | 6:21 pm
    Hello, I'm trying to build a standalone application for mac and win, starting from a project folder. A main patch manages the opening of external files like like .pdf, .png and .maxpat and so on. So the main patch is like a menu that opens furthermore the actual patch. I've collected all the files in a project and built the application from the project window (Manage Project > Built Collective/Application...). Unfortunately when I launch it with RunTime, after a couple of minutes, it crashes without opening the standalone app. What am i missing? Does anyone have any suggest?
    Thank you.

      i've only tried building an application from the project window once and it didn't work (in max 6)-- try building it from the file menu instead. you may also need to move dependencies into their relevant folders within the resultant standalone manually -- max doesn't seem to be very good at doing this automatically, especially java classes, js scripts and some other non-maxpat files, even if they're in your project folder; there are some useful threads on this forum and a "vignette" in the documentation I think on building standalones
