Re: [Sc-devel] stand-alones

Thanks James... this actually helped me narrow down the problem. It turns out that the SystemExtension class directories are ignored, BUT the UGens that are in them aren't! 

I'll look for where those are loaded in scsynth, and will see if a similar fix is possible.

That's odd because I see this in the source (in static void sc_InitCompileDirectories(void)):

if (!sc_IsStandAlone()) {
sc_GetSystemExtensionDirectory(gSystemExtensionDir, MAXPATHLEN);
sc_GetUserExtensionDirectory(gUserExtensionDir, MAXPATHLEN);

So perhaps sc_IsStandAlone() returns the wrong value?

Maybe do a debugging scprintf in sc_InitCompileDirectories to find out what's being done?

hi all,

I've noticed today that with a new stand-alone build, that the Extensions folder and startup.rtf are being read. Does anyone know what needs to be done in the source for this to not happen?
