Re: Urgent: app is 'broken' on download!

Success! The tutorial does need updating – there's a part that actually breaks the process if done in the suggested order, although it's simple enough to fix once you grok the issue. But hey, that's the price of progress.

Re: Urgent: app is 'broken' on download!

Oh god. The tutorial requires Xcode. I can't download Xcode because it requires me to be on 10.15 but this Mac is running 10.14. It's my backup Mac that is for running a few key 32-bit applications so I'm definitely not updating it. My Catalina Mac died at 6 days old early last week and I'm probably...

Re: Clear Browser widget cache?

Things have been complicated a bit by my new (very new) MacBook Pro dying on Tuesday and me switching temporarily to an older machine. I just realised I've been using 9.5.1 so I'll fix that pronto and see if it helps.

Re: Urgent: app is 'broken' on download!

Sounds like you need to notarize and staple the app. Oh god. I mean YAY! :D I know I need to sort out codesigning, but it really seems such a convoluted mess. Matthias's instructions look superb, but oh boy there is so MUCH in that. Oh well, time to dive in. ...Tomorrow. Oh, and *thank you* :) k

the error message is misleading, in Mojave it just said the app was from an unknown developer.
Just FYI, I'm currently running in Mojave. I'm waiting for my new MBP to be replaced as it died after 6 days! I've seen both error messages in this OS, and yes, it's hella misleading.

Re: Urgent: app is 'broken' on download!

Thanks all the same! I've just posted to the LiveCode Commercial area. I pretty much only make free stuff but I have a commercial license, perhaps this will help. :?

Re: Urgent: app is 'broken' on download!

Hi Klaus, First of all, good question but yes, I am making this on a Mac. :) Second, yes, disk images are common (although plain zips are also common). But unfortunately I just tried this and it's no better. Whether I try to launch the app directly from the (read only) DMG or copy it to /Application...

Re: Urgent: app is 'broken' on download!

Okay, I have made a fixer app that DOES work when downloaded. It's just a single button with this in an on mouseUp handler: answer file "Please select the Exif Fixer application" put "xattr -dr com.apple.quarantine" && quote & it & quote into thePath get shell(thePath) But WHY has this happened? I r...

Re: Urgent: app is 'broken' on download!

Still urgent! But I've unearthed a little more detail... It seems that app translocation may be the problem. The odd thing is that some of the tricks mentioned (such as moving the file before launching) doesn't work for me. However the terminal trick of blitzing attributes does. It also works if don...

Urgent: app is 'broken' on download!

I have an app that I make in Mac, Win and Linux flavours. It's been going for a few years. In around the last week I've had reports from people that the Mac version, which is downloaded from my site as a zip archive, is reported as being broken and can't be used. This happens to me too when I try do...

Re: Clear Browser widget cache?

Hi Simon – good to hear you've managed to tame this. I had tried something similar (500 milliseconds delay) although I'd done it after setting the URL and before showing the widget. I've now started the script by clearing both the URL and the HTMLText of the browser widget (thanks for that suggestio...

Re: Use send for file cleanup?

I have a cron script working very well - thanks, all, for your advice! But I think I'll switch to this idea (cron running a LC stack) soon, so as you say I get the best of both worlds. 👍

Re: Clear Browser widget cache?

I'm having a pretty frustrating time with a browser widget, and the inability to properly force a full reload is, I think, at the heart of it. I have a local HTML file that references an XML file, and that references a JavaScript file and a jpeg. This is a 360 VR player, and the file:/// path works ...

Re: Calling JS in a browser object from LC?

Hi Thierry, I did look at that, but it seemed to be the wrong way around for my requirements. Isn't this a way to have a JS *call* be passed to a LC script, making LC do the work instead of the JS? What I need to do is use that JS function to find the view parameters of the panorama shown in the bro...
