Run other apps from the installer
Authored by: megagram on Nov 19, '07 10:22:10AM
You can do this without the open command. Just enter the full path to the Mach-O executable file and it will launch the given application.

For instance, to launch TextEdit:

/Applications/TextEdit.app/Contents/MacOS/TextEdit

The generic command would be:

/Applications/AppName.app/Contents/MacOS/AppName

Run other apps from the installer

Hear hear! You beat me to the punch.

I'm a command line/keyboard junkie, and, other than Spotlight since Leopard, this is my favorite way to launch programs. :)
