Prevent stand alone app from opening Max window at launch

Jan 20 2011 | 10:11 pm

I have a simple Max stand alone app that insists on opening the Max window when launched. How do I convince it not to?

have a look at the inspector for the [standalone] object. I think it’s in there… I think.

Yes, it definitely is.

Hey thanks for responding. That is the same answer I have read in other posts, but it confuses me.

There is no "stand alone object." I am starting with a patcher, then use the "Build Collective/Application" to create an application.

So I have a patcher at the beginning, and an application when I’m done. Where’s the "object" in this? I have checked the patcher inspector, and I don’t see anything there that addresses this.

I know it must be something simple, but the answers I have read so far don’t seem to address what I am seeing.

Duh, I get it, the [standalone} object as in put one in your patcher to control aspects of your "stand alone" application.

Apologies for my ignorance, I didn’t realize there was such an object. I hadn’t seen it mentioned anywhere in the docs discussing collective/application building.
