i did some more tests.
even a standalone with a single bang inside does require the "Java Runtime"
on mac osx 10.7.3
same result, if i build the standalone in max 5 or max 6.
i did a clean, fresh install of osx 10.7.3 on an empty harddisk.
i do not understand why i need java to run a standalone.
or is max based on java ?
i thought, if i make a standalone, it runs without installing anything.
never had this bug. but one thing that comes to my mind (though it might be the totally wrong path) is that i read theses days that apple deactivated Java (as part of a recent update) due to a security issue that was exploited by a virus.
so my far fetched thought is: as usually Java is installed and enabled on all Macs maybe Max expects it to be installed/active even though it is not used….
Does the error only occur on standalones?
But that would be probably more a question to support…
(unfortunately my Mac is of an older generation and I can’t reproduce the error)
