Hi CanuckMSP,

Please try using the following command - the previous command won't check beyond the outer basic layer of the bundle:
Code: Select all
codesign --verify --deep --strict --verbose=2 /path/to/Viscosity.app
The bundling method will still work fine with modern versions of macOS. In this instance I'd say something is modifying the Viscosity app bundle prior to it being included in the installer.

Cheers,
James

Fantastic, that helped narrow down the issue. Thank you!

I store all my project files on OneDrive, which apparently modifies files as part of the sync. What a nuisance.

A fresh copy from my /Applications folder passed, but as soon as it was put into OneDrive it would fail.
Code: Select all
Viscosity.app: resource fork, Finder information, or similar detritus not allowed
