I believe that refers to only changing the omnis executable to look like 
it is named something entirely different... with different icons etc.

Nothing to do with creating an installer for the resultant application.

I’m pretty much just adding a library to the startup folder and changing the application name.  I point it to an output folder which creates a folder with all the runtime components including a firstruninstall folder.  The tree looks correct, but I thought I was going to get something I can send to a client to install on their computer.
