Building an Application (Stand-Alone)

March 29, 2013 | 3:17 pm

I have recently made my first patch and i have just discovered how to export it as an application, if i save the app to a usb stick and open it on a different computer it works fine, but if i try and send the app via email it wont choose the file, instead it will open the contents so i am unable to select the whole thing, i know it is probably something simple but i would appreciate some help, many thanks

If I understand correctly, you could zip up your app and send it as an archive (1 file), the recipient could then unzip it their end.

odd I’ve been having the same problem. When I email it unzipped – it cannot open at all – I get a message about the classic environment not being supported. But when I zip it doesn’t quite work either; I am able to unzip and open the application, but no window is opened and there is no FILE EDIT VIEW menu bar on the top. Only the application name is present just as ‘Chrome’ is right now in my top menu bar.
any ideas?
