I have never built a mac app or installer so forgive me but I tried setting up a simple osx install project and dragged in an app I already have on my mac just to get a feel for how it works and when I click on the resulting installer.app mac pops up a box saying 'cannot run this app'. what am I doing wrong?

This error is probably due a new security feature to protect users from malicious software by only allowing applications from the Apple Store or signed by a registered Apple Developer to be installed. You need to become a registered Apple Developer and request a signing certificate:
