tsNet and CFBundleIdentifier Collision Error - Mac App Store

When attempting to upload my signed package to iTunes Connect (Mac App Store) with Apple's Application Loader, I got this error: ERROR ITMS-90511: "CFBundleIdentifier Collision. The Info.plist CFBundleIdentifier value 'au.com.techstrategies.external.tsNet' of 'Classroom Quizshow.app/Contents/MacOS/E...

Re: Can't copy data files into sandboxed app's container

Yes!!!! When I use the "put URL" method properly, including the file names in the second part as you suggested, it works in both the unsandboxed and sandboxed versions of my standalone. I'm back in business and moving forward after more than a year of stagnation! Thank you! So, lesson learned here i...

Re: Can't copy data files into sandboxed app's container

I've heard of problems with revCopyFile, too. I notice my sandboxed standalone takes longer to open than the un-sandboxed standalone. There's a note in the LiveCode documentation about revCopyFile not being available when the app first launches. Maybe revCopyFile isn't yet available when it's called...

Re: Can't copy data files into sandboxed app's container

Thanks, Tom, but I don't see how that would help because I'd still be copying or in this case saving stacks to the same location. Seems like I'd run into the same problem.

Can't copy data files into sandboxed app's container

I have an app called Classroom Quizshow. I have three data files (Settings Saver.rev, Questions.rev, and Teams.rev) inside a folder called "CQdata" within my standalone app's package. In my openCard handler, I copy them from my app's package to the appropriate location inside the user's Library. The...

Re: Restated: Mac Sandbox Container Folder Creation Problem

I'm making some progress. It turns out the special file path I need is specialFolderPath("support"). By debugging with some 'answer' lines, I determined the following: For non-sandboxed apps (my stand-alone app as built by LiveCode), specialFolderPath("support") = ~/Library/Application Support. For ...

Re: Restated: Mac Sandbox Container Folder Creation Problem

I'm not trying to write to the bundle. What I'm saying is I'm trying to do exactly what you describe, but it doesn't work.

...EXCEPT, I haven't heard of the special folder path you mentioned and will try it as soon as I get home. Thanks!

Restated: Mac Sandbox Container Folder Creation Problem

I'm restating this issue from my previous post because I understand the issue better now and can explain it more clearly. For an app to be sandboxed for the Mac App Store, data files need to be stored within the app's container (<bundle_id> = app's container) in the directory shown here... ~/Library...

Re: Mac Sandbox Container Creation Problem

I'm going to restart this issue with a new post because I understand it much better now. I can ask my question much more clearly.

Re: Mac Sandbox Container Creation Problem

Thank you for your help, Jacque. However, unless I am very much mistaken, you are describing the Library directory structure for a non-sandboxed Mac OS X app, while I am describing the Library directory structure for a sandboxed Mac OS X app.

Am I wrong? I could easily be because I'm no expert.

Mac App Store Rejection and Sandboxing Requirements

I've got an app in the Mac App Store, but I haven't been able to update it in almost a year. The sandboxing requirements have changed, I'm sure, and now I seem to be in violation. Specifically I stand accused of attempting to write to data files in the app package. My app does copy data files from t...

Re: Fixed Yet? Three Questions

I'm not a big fan of PHPBB's default settings either, nor the cumbersome means they provide to change them. Do you mind if I ask what terms you were searching for? Next time I poke around I'll see if I can lighten things up a bit with PHPBB's restrictions. One example is searching for "delete stack...
