    HI, I am having OSX 10.4.11 version. I developed an application using Cocoa framework and Obj C. Then created a dmg file and distributing it. When I install dmg on 10.4.11 version, it is working fine. But the same is not true with 10.4.10 version........ is this because of backward in-compatibility issue ? or any specific reason?
    Note: All the above said machines have intel processors.

    You'd have to be more specific. It should be giving an error when it launches (in Console).

    you are right "kainjow". When I am double clicking the icon in Applications.....it is not showing any message. Then from console I tried to open it. then it showed the error "image not found"

    So I guess it works on your development machine, running 10.4.11. It doesn't run on another machine, running 10.4.10. Does it run on any machine other than your development machine, running 10.4.11? Does it run on your development machine if you don't start it from XCode? There is very little difference between 10.4.10 and 10.4.11, so there is more likely a difference between the machines that you are using.

    It is very important for you to learn to describe as precisely as possible what is actually happen. Seriously, how do you expect anyone to know what you mean with "it is not working fine"? Usually, you write down: Exactly what are you doing. Exactly what do you expect to happen. Exactly what happens.

    Good point. Are you sure you've made a Release/Deployment Build, rather than a Debug/Development build?

    sorry friends for not explaining you clearly.
    I am building the code in Release/Deployment mode and Packaging using "Packagemaker" and then making it as "dmg" file. When installing when user accepts defaults, it must install without any problem and run.
    Anyway I found the problem - "Mono -1.2.2" is necessary to run the application. When I installed on 10.4.10 which don't have this, it's failing to come up. On whatever machines I tried, its working fine as they all consists of "Mono".

    Thanks for your replies.
