Odd that, We use a different Icon file as well, just a regular JPG converted to icns format.  Our fie is in the usual location, LinealSQLWorksDev,

We simply replace the existing omnis.icns file.

Ok, so utilizing the assistance from mike and Phil, I have got a little further…..

The issue with the ‘Omnis’ file itself turned out to be a timing issue of when I was trying to sign it, so that appears to be ok now (signing it at the end of the signing list !)

What I still have as an issue now though is a persistent : 'unsealed contents present in the bundle root’ error which is preventing further action - the Apple docs are less than helpful on what it may be - does anyone know any more about this one ?

I have got an amended icns file involved - which some googling suggested may be an issue - however even exchanging that for the original omnis one didn’t change anything…..

I make my app, and follow the scripts I have previously got (an edit of Bas’s scripts) - and all passes muster, it appears notarized and stapled….

I make a dmg - and again following the scripts I notarize my dmg

Except this time I get a failure and following the logs, it tells me that the signature on the ‘Omnis’ app itself (TheApp/Contents/MacOS/Omnis) is invalid

Anyone know why that may be and what command I should add to the script to correct it ?

I am currently trying :

codesign -f -o runtime --entitlements /Users/andy/Downloads/codesign/standard_entitlements.plist --timestamp --verbose -s "Developer ID Application: Andy Hilton (6UMDUSHJ58)"
codesign -f -o runtime --entitlements /Users/andy/Downloads/codesign/extended_entitlements.plist --timestamp --verbose -s "Developer ID Application: Andy Hilton (6UMDUSHJ58)"
