I've got some trouble making an installer with "PackageMaker". Actually it works, but the problem comes when the files are installed. The point is there are some applescripts i've made that I let PackageMaker install, but after they are installed they have become "classic" apps.. (i had saved the scripts as applications).

So before i install them with the "install wizard" there just normal applescript apps and they work like a charm, but after they are installed they become classic apps... (escpecially irritating when they have to run on a IntelMac...)

Anyone any idea how this could happen? Thanks!!

Maybe try saving the script as an Application Bundle instead of Application? Or make sure the script has a .app extension before handing it over to PackageMaker?
