In some cases when deploying the Aspera Connect browser plug-in, it may be desirable to extract the
pkg file directly from the applet to use for installation. Installations from the
pkg file may avoid some issues that occur from installing with the applet.
First, at the command line, navigate to the directory containing the Aspera Connect
dmg file. From this directory, run the following commands:
# open AsperaConnect-188.8.131.52265.dmg
# pkgutil --expand /Volumes/Aspera\ Connect\ Installer/Aspera\ Connect\ Installer.app/Contents/MacOS/AsperaConnect.mpkg AsperaConnect.mpkg
# cp -r AsperaConnect.mpkg/Contents/Packages/asperaconnect.pkg .
asperaconnect.pkg file should now exist in your current directory. This file can be used as a stand alone installer for Mac.
