Do you want to know how to use the installer or how to make the installer?

The reason you can't open it is that I saved the script as an application so AppleScript wouldn't start-up everytime the script was run. Creating it isn't very hard if you know the basic commands for AppleScript. The script just uses multiple move commands to transfer the files between folders.

If you know the basics you should be able to copy the installer. Since I did the installer when I was testing out Applescript everything is very basic. I only use 4 commands: set, move, make, and display. I will write a small sample of what the installer uses. Below is everything I used in the installer except for the set command, set is only used if you are declaring a variable which I didn't need for the code below.

Code: Select all

tell application "Finder"
activate

make new folder at desktop

move folder "untitled folder" to trash

display dialog "The folder has been moved to the Trash."

end tell

To choose the folder, just use that command.

Code: Select all

choose folder
The above code will bring up the prompt screen to have the user choose a folder.

If you combine all of the commands I have posted you would be able to do exactly what you want. Here are the steps needed to make an installer.

1. Choose the folder to install to.
2. Choose the folder that contains the files you want to install.
3. Move the files to the install folder.

Now I will write which command goes with which step.

1. Choose Folder command. You will need to use the Set command to store the folder's location.
2. Exactly the same as Step 1.
3. The Move command will transfer the files. You will use your stored folder location from steps 1 and 2 to move the files to the correct folders.

You said you knew the basics of AppleScript. Also, I wasn't going to give the whole code to the installer I made. If you would of actually went over the code that I posted you would of been able to build the exact same installer I built. I doubt you know anything about AppleScript, which is the reason you had no idea what I was talking about when I posted the code.

If you really do know more than the basics then you should of been able to tell exactly what commands were being used and how to make the installer yourself.
