AW: where does the standalonebuilder saves the substacks in an Mac OS App?

Creating a standalone on MacOS 10.12 with LC 8.1.3, LiveCode puts the file
"revsecurity.dylib" into "my.app/Contents/MacOS/"
As you say, this would be against the rules of Apple. Is this a bug? Or is
it still arbitrary, where to put your files?

I think that's right, Apple enforces this rule.
The standalone builder will move files to a Resources folder when it builds
the app. For backward compatibility, scripts that reference the engine
folder are redirected to the Resources folder automatically.
