Jitter Loading Crash…was working

Jan 20 2007 | 9:15 pm

We had Max, MSP and Jitter running on our MacBookPro under Windows XP (using boot camp). After over a month, a separate problem caused windows to crash, and we had to reload Windows. We kept our data files, but lost (and have since reloaded) all applications.

Now the new installation won’t run Jitter. MAX/MSP open and run, but if we install Jitter, it crashes MAX/MSP and Jitter right after it announces that Jitter was initialized.

We have Java loaded, and OpenGL.

Any suggestions for dubugging are appreciated. Thanks very much.

What about QuickTime?

Yes, although we haven’t applied the Quicktime Pro upgrade yet.
I’ll try removing and reinstalling qt right now. It’s bound to be something like that.

MMM…nope, wasn’t that.
I uninstalled QT, rebooted, reinstalled QT, rebooted, installed Jitter, rebooted, tried to run MAX/MSP/Jitter…crashed.

The exact report we get right before everything closes up is "Jitter 1.6.2 installed".

Typically, under the circumstances you describe, this is due to a
problematic java installation (with Jitter 1.5 and later we try to
initialize Jitter Java support at that time). To test, I would
suggest you place a text file named jitter-config.txt in your search
path with the line "jitter java 0;" to disable jitter java support.
If this solves the crashing, then the Java install is most likely
responsible, and I would suggest you try ininstalling/reinstalling
java and see if that helps (to test, of course, you’ll need to remove
the java prohibiting jitter-config.txt from your search path). If
this does not solve your problems, I’d suggest the typical trash
prefs, uninstall/reinstall of Max/MSP/Jitter, and if still happening
contact for more detailed support.

Thanks very much. That’s what it was.
We de-installed, then re-installed Java 2 RTE, and it now runs like before.

thanks again
