Access violation after notarization

Recommended Posts


I have an MacOs application that works ok after signed in Catalina. But after notarization, I get an access violation when trying to start. I've "Allow unsigned executable memory entitlement" enabled.

Anyone can help me?


Thank you,

Without a reproducible test case, it would be hard to tell.


Some prudent adding of Log.d calls and use of the Console app (in /Applications/Utilities) might help find where it is crashing.

Hello, Log.d has helped me to find the problem. I see that Delphi converts info.plist to binary before signing and notification actions, and i was trying to read this xml in my application.

It seems that this conversion to binary is not needed, because Apple accepts my notification if I do it manually, avoiding this conversion.

Another question: how notification works? I must do the notification every time I modify the application? Because now I'm trying to download an only signed version and Catalina doesn't blocks it.


Thank you very much
