Trouble importing MSP Externals

    Apr 24 2014 | 10:26 am
    1stly i'm new to max and this is probably obvious,
    as an example i wish to use the OSCroute~ external from CNMAT,
    i have downloaded it and all it's cousins, i have told file preferences where this folder is with the title CNMAT,
    in a new patcher, in the object explorer i type in OSC - expecting it to appear as an object that i can drag into my patcher, no joy,
    i "install" OSCroute~ - and in the max window i get some text from CNMAT, so it's in in some way,
    again i type OSC into the object explorer and nothing happens,
    am i missing something? how does one get the external into the patcher?
    running Max 6.1.6 / 6.1.7 PC, Mac, 32 bit / 64 bit, i have all types and i can't get it to work in any of them,

      well thankfully i worked this out myself, there is an "object" object in the object explorer, i drag this into my patch and type in the name of my external and bob's my uncle...
