Search paths in collective/application

Apr 24 2009 | 9:14 am

hi all,

i know this has already been discussed a while ago but this old thread didn’t help me to solve my problem.


i can’t get the path to my mxf with path>thispatcher>absolutepath.
it works with max 4.6.3, but not in max 5… max gives me this error :

print: /
error: cannot build search path from root directory

(my mxf isn’t located in my root directory but on my desktop)

does anybody have a solution ?

thanks !

but… this works fine in an application, but not in a collective.

the collective returns the Max5 application folder (because it’s running in max or the runtime)
