Installer out of browser application Silverlight (OOB) under MacOS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to create an installer for MacOS without opening the page in a browser.

    On Windows, I can do this with the following command:
    sllauncher.exe /install:local_path_xap /origin:url_xap /shortcut:desktop+startmenu /overwrite

    As I understand it in MacOS there is no such possibility.

    I used a workaround to create the installer - https://www.blaize.net/2012/04/offline-oob-mac-installation/.

    I created this package in MacOS 10.12 and successfully installed. I tried to install it in MacOS 10.13, but I get the following error - "App is not optimized for your Mac and needs to be updated". This suggests that you cannot run x32 applications. - https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208436.

    Is there a way to remake this package so that it can work both there and there?

    I also use the application update using the method Application.Current.CheckAndDownloadUpdateAsync(). The update does not occur and display error - "Debugging resource strings are unavailable. Often the key and arguments provide sufficient information to diagnose the problem".
