In terms of the general thrust behind this thread - I completely agree that standalone building has become tortuous over the last few years as all platforms add more and more hoops you have to jump through. However, this is probably best done by improving the standalone building process (i.e. making it as easy as possible) rather than anything else.
I complete agree that enhanced standalone building (vs any sort of player other than LiveCode itself as is) is the way to go - as Richard's new thread discusses.
Sadly, one thing I don't think we'll ever get back is single platform building. I started off in LC building for macOS and Widows (and sometime Linux) on Windows. And that was wonderful and super convenient to be able to do that. Then along came code signing requirements and I could (and can) still built on 1 platform for several, but I must code sign on each. And then Apple introduced the notarization requirement, yet one more thing that required platform differentiation.
What I would not give to get back to click one button and get code signed, notarized, and whatever to heck else standalones for all my deployment platforms all on a single platform (preferably Windows for me)!
I just think that the OS vendors will never let us get back to that. _______________________________________________ use-livecode mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org Please visit this url to subscribe, unsubscribe and manage your subscription preferences: http://lists.runrev.com/mailman/listinfo/use-livecode
