Building a Standalone MacOS App in 9.6.1

macOS Catalina or Big Sur apps have to be code signed AND notarized. You 
must have the command line tools installed and there is a non-trivial 
number of commands you have to execute to prepare you app for code 
signing, then code sign it, and then notarize it, including obtaining an 
app specific password from Apple.

Livecode has a pretty decent tutorial on their web site on the whole 
lengthy process.
