how to sign runtime apps for Mac


     On the Mac, we distribute our runtime apps built with FileMaker 11 via dmgs. Users see the attached alert when they attempt to install on OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion). In order to get around this, they currently have to change their system-wide security settings. We'd like to avoid this.

     The information provided by Apple appears to be for true applications built from source code - not FileMaker runtimes. I know it's necessary to join the Mac Developer Program, but we don't want to do that unless there's a clear pathway to signing our apps, and it seems unlikely Apple would be much help with that. Is there a simple set of instructions somewhere for signing a FileMaker runtime app with an Apple Developer ID certificate?
