Upload an LC file to Mac App Store

Mario -

You said:
I developed some 
small applicationsin LICVE CODE that I wanted to
publish on the  
AppStore Mac,
I have inscribed me as a developer for the Mac App Store,

I created the two certificates and Mac Mac App Installer,
I added up 
Itunesconnect my applications that are now waiting to upload
when I try to use Application Loader .. it does not see my
LiveCode created and placed on the desktop.

IF there is somebody who 
really KNOWS  the all PATH to upload a
LiveCode file  to  Mac App 
Store, please, may inform me about ?
Otherwise i am going to suppose 
that LIVECODE is not  accepted by  Mac
App Store..

I hope to have been 
clear about my question..thanks a lot to YOU

was successful in submitting an app using the following steps:

Get your two certificates from Apple per their instructions.

1. save 
the app in livecode

2. open the plist inside the package and do the 
(NOTE: your actual application type should be changed to 
reflect your
application - see Apple's list. This is provided as an 
-add LSApplicationCategoryType         public.app-category.
-change the bundleversion from the number that Livecode 
supplies to
your applications number so that it is in a 3 number two 
dot format
i.e. 1.0..0

3. delete all .lproj folders from within the 
Resources folder inside
the app bundle that you do not support

4. open 
the terminal and paste the codesign line below (be sure to
'myapp' with the name of your application)

5. Next, in the terminal 
paste productbuild line below

6.  Apple suggests that prior to 
submitting to the Mac app store, the
installation process for Macs be 
tested using the sudo command below.
the password is this computers 
password for installing software

7. use apploader to submit the binary

Spaces are important!
PathToYourFile is in 
the form  you get if you use answer file from
inside LC with the 
addition of your app name like this:

codesign -s 3rd -v PathToYourFile

productbuild --component 
PathToYourFile /Applications --sign "3rd
Party Mac Developer Installer: 
YourName" MyApp.pkg

sudo installer -store -pkg /Users/ron/MyApp.pkg -
target /

Hope this helps
