Description SirIntellegence 2014-12-15 15:46:07 UTC
I am working on a NetBeans platform application, and several of our Mac users report that the installer neither places a shortcut on the desktop or an item in the mac dock. I investigated that and found the following comment for the desktop item (for which there is a check box):

                        "... skipping this step as we're on Mac OS"); // NOI18N
And an XmlException of sorts gets thrown when trying to modify the doc xml.
Please get this fixed soon!

Does not consider it P2. Know that it's annoying for you, but this issue isn't priority in future release.
