help : problems building application as standalone
Hi everyone, this is my 1st post. Sorry if it’s already been asked
I am having problems opening built applications (.exe) in runtime on windows XP using MSP/MSP 4.5.5.
This happens upon load up of the .exe using Runtime
If its any help the error on my machine reads….
AppName: collective app.pat-build.exe AppVer 188.8.131.52 ModName asintppc.dll ModVer: 0.410.0.0 Offset: 0008152c
I had a rumage around the web and managed to download something called Granular Spatializer.exe and that also seems to crash
I have tried the same, built applications on my housemate’s pc and I am having the same problem
I am panicking because I have built something as a product idea for my final year dissertation. I was relying on handing it in as .exe which could be then looked at by the examiner. Forgive me.
Your help would be much appreciated
I have read the posts about patches containging period characters twice not working but I have a feeling its something else.
try naming it something without two periods in it.
try calling it foo.exe
Let us know if that works. I have no idea why the Granular one is not working.
What is the link to it?
Thanks for the reply
I have found a built application which works so its not a problem with my pc setup or anything
Im going to have a second look at this, double check that i am importing every p patcher file (counted 13 of them) and give it another try. I have found that there is a coll object in there so Im reading up on how to solve this now
I will upload a version when its closer to completion unless I get really stuck.
Theres some images here tho, its basically a mathematical midi sequencer (an ugly looking one lol)

it works!! :D
Heres the built application…
Someone emailed me asking me how I got it working
There’s a bug in MAX/MSP which basically causes any patches with more than one period character (‘.’) in the naming to crash on load. Check your max patch for any patcher p files with names like p foo.pat.etc or p synth.cycle.whatever
Make it all lowercase just to be safe
If your using files which require other embedded files to operate such as coll or buffer~ make sure you place all your files into the same folder and create files with the necessary extensions (coll = something.txt)
Save every patcher file separately into the same folder
In max go file > build collective/application/plug-in
Select > include folder in the collective editor and import every patcher file
***I found after this all I need is the top or main msp file and nothing else****
Click toplevel patcher and select the main max patch which holds all the patches
Save as file type .exe (if your making a VSTI then pluggo plugin.dll)
Close max, find the created exe, click it and pray it works
