Hi.
You must have one instance of the [standalone] object in your patch.
App creator code can be set in the inspector.
Cheers.

Hi Will,

you have to get the creator msg into the standalone object. The
default is ????

good luck with your installation

Be informed that apple keeps a database of registered creator codes. You can register one that will then be reserved and especially when an application is likely to be running on others’ computers, such a code is then guaranteed to be unique.

any hex editor or utils like “file buddy” let you edit
the type and creator of any file.
