I have created a standalone on XP that runs from Parallels on a mac and receive the complaint that it does not run on Vista. Is it indeed the case that an XP built does not run on Vista or should this be working? As I have little experience with windows, any pointer is appreciated.
I have received similar reports from one user on vista. It works fine in xp on my mac, but he reports the following when trying to run it in vista:
I cannot install the program- I receive an error message saying that maxcrt.dll is missing, although I can see it in the list of install files. When I click the error message off, I get another message saying "Max has encountered an error" and the install crashes.
My message dates back to the 5.0.7 era. In the meantime I have been able to get it working on a number of windows versions, including Vista. I inform users to update their system as well as quicktime. So far on one it won’t work but don’t know yet why.
I’m about to port a standalone from Mac to PC and have been wondering about this myself. I have 5.0.8. Since the app I’m building is primarily used by Networking types who tend to use XP, I planned to do the build on XP. If I do that, will it still run on Vista? How about Windows 7? Is there a "better" Windows flavor to do the build on that makes it more versatile? Thanks.
