Unable to load externals in Max 6.1.6 under 10.6.8 OSX

Hi there,For some reason I’m unable to load externals with Max 6.1.5 in OSX 10.6.8. I keep getting this error. "sigmund~: unable to load object bundle executable
2014-02-27 11:43:45.990 Max[676:207] Error loading /Applications/Max 6.1/Cycling ’74/msp-externals/sigmund~.mxo/Contents/MacOS/sigmund~: dlopen(/Applications/Max 6.1/Cycling ’74/msp-externals/sigmund~.mxo/Contents/MacOS/sigmund~, 262): no suitable image
found. Did find:
/Applications/Max 6.1/Cycling ’74/msp-externals/sigmund~.mxo/Contents/MacOS/sigmund~: no matching architecture in universal wrapper"

In this particular case I know that I saved sigmund~ in the msp externals folder and the help file in the msp help folder correctly.

Sorry, it’s on Max 6.1.5…
Will upgrade and try again to see if the error keeps coming up.

Someone suggested to try running Max on 32 bit mode and now I can load externals but now I have Max running on 32 bit mode…
Any chance I could solve the problem on 64 bit mode?

Time to save for a new laptop…

a lot of third-party externals have not been updated for 64-bit compatibility. when I had this problem last year it took me ages to figure it out!!
