Creating a pkg file for the Mac
Posted on 2013-12-09
Hello Respected Experts,
Now that Apple's PackageMaker application doesn't work under Mavericks, is there a recommended method for making pkg files to submit to the App store? I don't use XCode for development (I use Embarcadero's FireMonkey), so I was wondering if it's possible to manually create a pkg file from the app folder created by FireMonkey. Although FireMonkey used to make the necessary pkg file, it is currently unable to do so due to changes in Mac's codesign application, so I'm left with attempting to manually codesign the app (which I can do using Apple's codesign application) and manually create the pkg file that is to be submitted to the App Store. How can I create the pkg file? What has taken the place of PackageMaker? I've done some extensive Googling of the issue and haven't found the answer. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.
