On my machine, the creator sig. of AppleShare Prep is "afpt". Is >>this by chance your app's signature? Just as an aside: Whenever you assign a creator code to an application, make sure it does not consist of all lowercase characters. Apple reserves all-lowercase-character Creator codes for itself and for portions of the operating system. According to Inside Macintosh, third-party software developers should never use this convention for assigning Creator or Type codes; rather, make sure the codes you create have at least one uppercase character (Creator and Type codes are case-sensitive).
