I was just going to suggest that. Since you already did that on windows, what's 
the reason why that approach doesn't work for you on OSX (with a shell script)? 
I also don't see why you needed a .exe, the user can just click on the 
script... or is it just because people are used to launch programs from 
clicking executables?
