Craig. You and I are very much in the same boat as far as how we use LiveCode.
The problem is not constructing the standalones. LiveCode is superb in this regard. The problem is distributing Apple unapproved standalones. It seems I can no longer do that anymore as I used to. The problem is that opening an unapproved standalone on an other computer other than one’s own is difficult if not impossible for OS 11.2. Other’s in this thread have offered that it still can be done albeit with a more convoluted process, and I am still trying to figure this out. e.g if I send a standalone to my wife (called StackOmatic) to share, we inevitably end up with the "You do not have permission to open the application “StackOmatic”. “Contact your computer or network administrator for assistance” with a simple “OK” button. I can’t seem to replicate the process that others have suggested to get to the “Open Anyway” button.

Anyway, leaving the IDE open is risky. _______________________________________________ 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
