Title says it – I just discovered that mxj objects aren’t loading at all in Max 6.1 (6.1.3) on my MacBookPro. I get "Could not load class xxx" messages.
I tried all of the ejies java externals, and some of the mxjs in the java-doc/tutorial/patches files (autocount1, HelloWorld1 etc).
My assumption is that there is something overall that i haven’t installed. If that’s right, what might it be?
Max 6.1.3 OSX 10.8.4. Macbook Pro Retina (Max in 32bit & low resolution modes)
Make sure you are running the latest version of Java. A newer version of Max may contain objects that were compiled for a more recent version of Java.. and as Chris mentioned, Mac doesn’t do java by default. So unless you are managing updates yourself, you are probably out of date.
