Hi,

I wonder if any of you are also Windows user as well, and develop Mac application as well...

Question, is there any software for Windows 7 that would let one extract a Mac .pkg file, so, one can see what the .pkg file contains.

Thanks.

According to a quick www search, this one can do what you want, in a way.
I tried that yesterday, unfortunately, it can't. It's able to extract a dmg file with a pkg... but unable to do some level down... thanks tho

Also, I should add, the pkg file is Playstation game but rather a Mac program archive file.

Can you link to the file in question, or is it an illegally obtained one you cannot post here anyway?

Then it is strange to use the PKG format in the first place.

It's my software. It has two versions, one for Windows and another for OSX and because I don't have a Mac handy at the moment, I have someone else create the installer for the Mac version. And because it's beta, I don't want to post its download URL to the public, could you pm me? I'd be happy to send it to you tho?

P.S. I posted response last night, but it wasn't posted, weird.

Ok, here's an update (6/3 8pm ET). Figured out a way to extract .pkg file, but installation scripts are all encrypted hence, unable to read / to know what's really going on...

Are any of you proficient with PackageMaker? Thanks.

btw, knb stands for Knowledge NoteBook.
