    Exporting an application for a Mac

      Does anybody know how to export a Director application to work with a Mac? I have exported using the 'Mac Projector' but it won't actually play on Macs. Am I missing something here?

      Cheers, Rich

          You publish it for Mac in the Publish Settings. When you have published
          it, it will place a file with the .hqx extension in the moviePath. DO
          NOT UNARCHIVE THE FILE ON A PC. You need to unarchive it on a Mac, then
          it will work (assuming there aren't scripting problems that prevent it
          from working).

          It would help of course if you were to define exactly what errors you
          are getting, and what exactly is not working.

            Sorry for not stating the error message, but I'm pretty sure it couldnt open the .osx.hqx file in anything. What do you mean by unarchive it? Do you mean delete the .hqx? Thanks

              .hqx is an archive format... like .zip. On a Mac, you can open them
              with Stuffit. I think you can use the built in "Archive Utility" that
              comes with Mac OSX (at least it comes with Leopard and Tiger...)

              Once you unarchive it, it will be a file with the extension .osx and it
              will be an executable file that will run on Macs as long as you do not
              copy it onto a PC.
