I'm trying to prevent the problem of all my installed files being owned by System, which happens because I ask the user to enter an admin password. I tried to remedy this by using "defaultUnixOwner", which doesn't work for me because the installer tries to change the owner of /Applications, which OS X doesn't like. That folder already exists, of course, and I'm installing the files into a new folder inside /Applications. I don't understand why the software tries to do this. Is there a workaround?
The message from InstallBuilder is
There has been an error. Error changing ownership of /Applications to myusername The application will exit now.
