First, your assumption that "it's one everyone is experiencing for any
installer" is exactly that, an assumption based on your experiences.
The vast majority of our customers are computer novices and anything but
the simplest of steps can cause them problems. Most do not know what
version of macOS they run, nor how to tell what version they are running.
Second, I was not calling for RunRev to "fix" this. It is clearly
Apple's inane drive for marketing a level or privacy and security that
is mostly a gigantic lie that is the cause.
And thirdly, drivers are a bit different than research apps.
> This is not limited to LC. When downloading drivers for MacOS from the Toshiba site, guess what you see? One link for drivers prior to a certain version of the OS, and another for later versions. It may be an annoyance, but it's one everyone is experiencing for any installer. RunRev won't be able to fix this so that we have one unified installer.

>> One annoyance from Catalina and Notarization for me as a developer:
>> LiveCode 9.x.x supports macOS 10.9 (Mavericks) through 10.15 (Catalina). For our app built on LC9.x.x, we support those versions of macOS as well. However, a Notarized DMG (one way of addressing Apple's Notarization requirement) will only open on Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave, or Catalina (10.12-10.15). For 10.9, 10.10, and 10.11 a Notarized DMG presents an error and will not open.
>> So now we have to guide out macOS customers to self-select one of two downloadable DMGs - one for earlier versions of macOS and a different one for later versions. In our case, we just do a regular signed app and signed DMG for 10.9 through 10.14 (Mojave) and a notarized DMG (with a signed app) for 10.15 Catalina
>> An, yes, no matter how "clear" we think our guidance is, we have people download the wrong DMG.
