I am running InstallBuilder in a Windows 7 environment. I do not think I can have InstallBuilder create a .DMG package (as defined in section 27 of the user guide). Is this correct? If so then I am trying to come up with a better solution using .zip.
I am building a Client app and Server app that runs on Windows, Linux and MacOS. For the MacOS case I end up with a .zip file for each one of these. When I unzip the file it creates the standard Mac "Contents" directory structure. I have had complaints where since the same directory names are used for my Client and Server apps, there is a conflict when they are unzipped. This may be due to confusion about the install process.
Is it preferred to just unzip that initial .zip file directly into the Applications directory on a Mac? I think that for other apps it pops up the "drag and drop" window to drag the install (.zip) to Applications directory. Then it unzips there in the background. Can InstallBuilder pop up this type of window?
Also, if I move InstallBuilder to a Mac server, will I definitely be able to create the .DMG package then? I use the latest InstallBuilder Pro. The Windows/Linux install setup would not change in this case right?
