Creating an "app" with platypus does not work for other users on a system/network. Only the user who made it

Im trying to make an app out of a 3 line script to start an agent on my 10.8.2 clients. I use platypus which does the previously mentioned however when i try to run the "app" as another user it fails to load at all. Instataneous failure with no error or text. Again the app/script work 100% when done by the original user.

Some key notes -

App is saved to the applications folder.
If i manually make the app as each user the app works -- this proves the script and agent run however i can get all users to use the same app to invoke the agent.

Please assist.

Thanks

If I understand this correctly, chmod could possibly fix the issue:

Thank you i had done this previously as i knew permission could be the issue. I did however fail to realise that the myProgram.app is not a single file but a folder and i needed to use the -R tag to chmod recursivley.

Thanks again -- mucho kudos to you
