Thanks Danno I do not use netbeans just Ant script for my build. So any way to 
set the javaFX Deploy ant script to tell the pkg file to deploy to the 
applications folder?

Thanks Again,

This is the “SystemWide” argument, which IIRC netbeans sets to false by 
default, this is NetBeans doing and not the packager.  I still don’t understand 
why they invert that default.  And it’s a pain to configure.

On your project, RMC and select properties.  Go to build/deployment and turn on 
the advanced JavaFX properties.  There is a scary dialog about changing the 
project files format.  Save a backup first.

Now it re-loads the project.  Go to the same dialog and about 2/3 of the way 
down is a checkbox “Install Permanently,” check it.

If you use the CLI or the Ant files w/o NetBeans help it is set to system wide 
by default, it is the JavaFX project (which makes sensible decisions for a 
webstart-centric app) that makes things confusing.
