not sure if this is a bug. Don't wanna noobishly spam to the devs' bug reports pile but this needs to be clarified. Is it a deken issue or on the repository or what?
Some searches for externals in the 64-bit version of PD vanilla for windows (I'm on windows 10) the deken search (in the menu: Help -> Find externals) don't return results while the same externals (in some cases) can found on the 32-bit version. Some externals are neither found in the 32- nor 64-bit version. Additionally - as a marker that something is wrong here - PD does not output the line
[deken]: No matching externals found. Try using the full name e.g. 'freeverb'.
which is the case for truly non-existing names (like searching "sdfsdfsdf").
Example of external found as expected on 32- and 64-version:
Example of external found as expected on 32- but NOT on 64-bit version:
Example of external found neither on 32- or 64-bit version:
What I'm most eager to find out is whether, say, the moonlib external is just not compiled for 64-bit windows and therefore is not found or whether it should be found and just isn't (which hints more towards a bug).
Does anyone have an idea? I'm not completely new to PD but not up to date at all with its development. It seems the current version 0.49 vanilla is the first to have a 64-bit windows version.
