When I try to launch PackageMaker.app, it immediately crashes with the error:

 

PackageMaker cannot be opened because of a problem.

 

Specs:

 

  • Xcode 4
  • Mac OS X 10.8.1 Mountain Lion
  • MacBook Pro

 

I've also posted this on StackOverflow.


MacBook Pro (13-inch Mid 2009), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)

    Apple doesn't support it anymore.

     

    I got it to work, by including it's missing framework: DSObjCWrappers.framework

     

    with: otool -L PackageMaker.app/Contents/MacOS/PackageMaker

     

    you will see where the frameworks was, (I don't remind exactly if System/Libraries/Frameworks or somewhere there), I found the framework on my older Lion.

     

    Then I copied it, into Packagemanager.app/Contents/MacOS/

    and used install_name_tool (to) -change Where_ever_it_was/DSObjCWrappers.framework/Versions/A/DSObjCWrappers

    to @executable_path/DSObjCWrappers.framework/Versions/A/DSObjCWrappers of

    PackageMaker.app/Contents/MacOS/PackageMaker.

    If Apple doesn't support PackageMaker anymore, how does Apple expect developers to bundle complex installers that need to run external scripts? Traditionally this has been done with .PKGs created by PackageMaker.

     

    I can't find an old DSObjCWrappers framework. Could you upload a copy for me?

    That's nonsense. Of course PackageMaker is still supported. It is no longer included with Xcode so you need to download the most recent version in one of the supplemental downloads.

    Whenever I put in that command into terminal it gives the following error: otool:

    can't open file: PackageMaker.app/Contents/MacOS/PackageMaker (No such file or directory)
