    Bundled Deployment Fails on Mac (Tiger)

    smeagol-fish Level 1

      I have created a Mac OS X package to deploy an Air application using the "sidecar" method.

       

      The package installs fine on a "Leopord" version of Mac OS X but fails with an error on "Tiger" (Intel & PPC). I have tested on 3 differemnt machines and the error is the same.

       

      The full logs are shown below:

      The problem line appears to be:

      chown of /Applications/SPS.app completed with status -1

       

      It seems to have be un-successful and hence the exitcode is non-zero. Question is, is there anything different being done when the installation process takes place on a "Tiger" than a "Leopord" OS?

       

      The installer runs the package installation with root permissions. So I am lost why a simple chown is failing. I should also note even though the "Installation failed" as reported by the installer, the application is launchable. Other things I have observed is the applciation icon doesn't show up when I view the application in the "Finder". I beleive it is related to not being able to run the "chown" operation successfully. I don't know what other issues will crop up since the deployment wasn't perfect.
