Standalone Executable .app "Quits unexpectedly" - v0.7.4 OSX 10.8.3

I’m working on a project wherein I build an OpenCV application on my dev computer and deliver it as a standalone executable to be launched on a different computer in an art gallery.

My dev computer is running OSX 10.8.3 and oF v0.7.4
The gallery computer is running OSX 10.6.8 without oF

When I compile a release version and open the .app on my dev computer, it works as expected. However, when I launch the same .app on the gallery computer, I get the error message “application quit unexpectedly.” I’m very new to openframeworks, coming from a processing background, but I’m assuming the reason why the app is throwing errors has something to do with the OS version? Is there a way to make sure the executable is backwards compatible with older Mac OS’s when I build the release vers?

Note: I am only copying the .app executable to the gallery computer at this time and it doesn’t make use of the data folder.

Thanks in advance!

how have to compile your app and OF for 10.6

click on the blue xcode project file icon that has your project file name and then select “build setting” and change “Base SDK” to OS X 10.6

do the same for the “openFrameworksLib.xcodeproj” file icon.

you might need to download the 10.6 SDK.
i had the same situation recently. some in this forum posted a link to 10.6 SDK

Thanks for the replies. This worked perfectly!
