Very useful post Trevor, thank you.

Can you confirm that the notarized standalone does NOT open in Mac OSX

I could not find this info in the Apple official docs, but I believe this
is the case.

Unfortunately my old mac that ran OSX 10.10 has been upgraded to High
Sierra, so I cannot test it myself.

Kind regards,
