hi object not working in Windows 7

Jul 03 2012 | 9:11 pm


I’ve created a Max MSP patch on my mac. I want to send this patch to my friends as a .exe file to my friends on a windows computer. I already manage to do this by sending my patch to my windows computer and build the patch to an .exe there.

But I got some trouble in Windows 7 with my hi object. I use it so it can spot the keyboard on the computer, so it can be selected. The keyboard is necessary for the patch, because pressing a key triggers my patch. The hi object says there a 0 devices available to select on the Windows computers. I tested it on two windows computers with the same result. Both have Windows 7.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

not sure if this helps, but if you’re really using [hi] just to catch keyboard activity, why don’t you simply go with the [key] or the [keyup] object?

This is because I want the patch to register all the keyboard activity with the patch running on the background. with the [key] object it only works with the patch on the foreground, right?
