this is frustrating, isn't it !!

If I were you, I'd send an email to the list saying (something along the lines of ....)

I want to get to the bottom of this. I'm going to host a Zoom call on my wife's Mac at <pick your time and timezone> where I will share my screen so you can all see what I'm doing, and I'll then accept suggestions of what to do/try.  Here's the key/invite ...
All welcome !!

I'll do my best to attend - but since I don't own a Mac that can run anything later than 10.13 I suspect I'll be a spectator, not a contributor.

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.

For about eight users in my business I distribute standalones for desktop only, 
both Mac and Windows versions. These are developed on a Mac. Simple to update 
and make, simple to give away, simple to use.

That is the aspect of this thread that I do not understand, perhaps misreading 
that it is somehow problematic to do what I do without issue. I am certain I 
simply have this wrong.

I do all this in the Community version. I do not sell apps at all, though I own 
an Indy license just as a way to help LC a little. So I wonder if I am a 
scofflaw. If everyone was on a Mac, I might have simply distributed updated 
stacks, and have LC resident on all the other machines. But of course, the fact 
that most use Windows makes that impossible, and I will not use a Windows 
machine unless I have to. Anyway, leaving the IDE open is risky.
