      I tried this with the last version too (mac, 5.1.8). Same problem : it will crash at startup on other computers So I did it with the classic cycle~ > gain~ > ezdac~ patch It crashes again ! There's no attribute in the standalone object that seems to be significant for this ... grrrrr that's very annoying
      I have mac OS 10.5, maybe this is a clue ... or not. Don't know.
      thanks J

      Hello again
      Please, didn't anybody encounter the same problem ? It still doesn't work ... This is not a jitter or other specific object issue. Is the standalone export definitely broken in the last versions of Max ? Or does it work for some of you ?
      Thx J

      It does work for me. It would be nice to see the relevant part of your crash log...

      Thanks for your response, that makes me a bit less worried, though this is still weird. I just had a clue from a FB friend who adviced me to check paths in the standalone contents. Unfortunately I don't have a second mac to make a standalone crash at the moment, so I can't generate a log file right now. The path stuff seems logic since it crashes only on other computers. I'll check this and give some feedback as soon as I can.

      It seems to me that there's a few bugs with the standalone building. The issue's I've had, as well as others that talked about it on a previous thread, is that when first trying to create a standalone it builds a .mxf collection then on the second attempt it would build the standalone.
      But I also had issues with it running on a different mac.

      Does it make a difference if you zip up the app before sending it to the other computer?
