    Default Distributing apps on a CD


    We have an application that is build for both Windows and Mac which is distributed to the users on a CD. Is it possible to have both the versions on a single CD and depending on the users platform automatically installing the appropriate build ?

    Thanks a lot.

    Default Re: Distributing apps on a CD

    A quick answer (I don't have time to search for details right now) : Yes, it is possible. Windows and Macs like to have different filesystems on a cd, so it's possible to build a hybrid CD (two filesystems: ISO+Joliet for Window$ and HFS (or something like that) for MacOS). Thanks to that, the "preffered" filesystem will be initialised on each platform yielding a double-OS CD with two different contents visible from each platform.
