I have just released my first runtime file today and it consists of two files and a folder with files inside (as the manual says it should).

My question is this though: I have downloaded runtime files for mac and it is only ONE file (not two seperate files and a folder). How do I go about getting that extra file and "Extensions" folder INSIDE that main application file?

Kinda sucks... I thought developer would output one large file like Apple does for iTunes / iPhoto, etc.

FileMaker Version: Dev 7

Platform: Mac OS X Panther

i haven't played much with it but noticed that the window closed box is grayed out on all windows that I create. so I can't use the native close box to dismiss the window you are forced to create your own buttons to close the window. Redundant and potentially confusing for end users who know what a close box is and does. - i wish we could remove them all together.

OK, I have no idea what you are talking about smile.gif

I installed Iceburg... opened it up and was like "Woah!". I think it is far to programmy for me to understand at this point. I don't want an installer... just a once icon kind of runtime application.

Sorry. I only said I saw it. I haven't had time to play with much (though it doesn't sound much like play :-).

Here's another "FileMaker native" idea. On another list Bruce Roberston came up with a new phrase, a "marsupial installer."

It describes an FM7 file that has other files stored in container fields. A

script could control export of these files to the user's drive.

Kangaroos are marsupial, they carry their babies in pouches. Think of a

Filemaker file hopping onto your hard drive, eager to show you its children.

Or something like that!
