Deploying of V4REV MAC UB Application

Standalone Application Package

Revolution is able to produce a UB Application, which, in fact, is a package, which you can open via contextual menu of Finder using “Show Package Contents” item.

Now you should make one more simple step to prepare this application for deployment on the user computer. You should install /usr/local/lib/vcomponents inside your application package.

This is very easy to do with the help of:

Script Usage

  • open the terminal.app
  • drag script into the terminal window
  • drag MyApplication.app into the terminal window
  • press ENTER

NOTE: If you do this on OS X 10.3.9 you should add a backslash to the MyApplication.app path in the terminal after drag.

NOTE: to be able to run this script you should have the DEVELOPER folder installed from your Mac OS X DVD.

vcomponents at System Level

If you develop and deploy a family of applications that can/should be installed on the same user computer, then it is a good idea to put vcomponents only once. It is possible when this folder is at path “/usr/local/lib/vcomponents”, where any V4RB(UB) application can find it.

NOTE: This is the same as you have it now during the development.

For this scenario you should not do anything special, just make sure that your installer installs vcomponents there.
