I'm using installbuilder to create a DMG install file for distribution on Macs. My application is Java and a java launcher is correctly created.

My problem is that the CFBundleName is set to ${java_launcher_binary_name} in the Info.plist file. It's as if the variable has either not been initialised or is not being expanded.

I could modify the .plist after installation, but I'd rather not as I have had a few problems where users were unable to launch the application.

How can I make installbuilder put the expanded name (or any other name I choose) into CFBundleName?

Other than this, the automatic DMG/signing seems to work perfectly!

Is this referring to CFBundleName for the installer or the Java launcher?

The launcher. When you run up the app you see ${java_launcher_binary_name} appear in the title bar.

Indeed this seems like an issue with expanding variable names in InstallBuilder.

Please contact us as support(at)bitrock.com and we will provide you with a fixed version.
