AW: How to make an app accessible for all users on Mac?

Hello Kay,
that really sounds almost the same as Peters case, but seems not to be. I
run the check and the repair permissions, but my app wasn't even listed.
I build my standalone on Win, and took it from the network onto my Mac,
where I created a DMG. So no zip is involved.
But it must be a permission thing, because with my admin user it runs fine,
it just doesn't launches with a standard user, though I now put a "system"
user as the owner and gave read-write to everyone.
Any other idea?
