So the appcast.xml file points to the same DMG that you would make available to your users for download from your site. So that folder structure suggestion is correct.

As an example, here are my company urls used with the helper. The main DMG file downloaded by helper or directly from my website:

http://www.bluemangolearning.com/downlo ... nSteps.dmg.

My appcast.xml file is located in an auto_update folder however. This url is inserted into the Info.plist file:

http://www.bluemangolearning.com/downlo ... ppcast.xml

The release notes are stored under a folder in the auto_update folder in a folder with the version number:

http://www.bluemangolearning.com/downlo ... notes.html

Got it. I use the Shopify e-commerce platform and then SendOwl to distribute so my setup is a bit different.

This is a really great system. I was a bit apprehensive about switching over - I had an LC 6.x/GLX based product and finally switched over to LC 9 so I could release a 64 bit version. I thought it would be a lot harder, but it's come together more easily than I thought. I'm really pleased - thanks again.
