Many thanks Heather and Scott for these lessons. Unfortunately they don’t apply to OS Big Sur. In fact, it was because I initially thought that apple closed this door to opening standalones (SA) in Big Sur that I raised the alarm here.
Turns out the process in Big Sur is even easier, involving just a few “opening” clicks to actually open a SA which I discovered with the help of Scott and others here. The easiest way to describe it is to Right or Control click on the unzipped SA twice. The second time will add an “Open” button to the dialog box that will indeed open it. There may be some variations of this that might work as well, but the second mouseClick on the SA must be a Right or Control click that brings up the context menu. I will try to get a short lesson with screen captures to the Forum soon. HTH and thanks to everyone who participated in this thread.
