I developed an application on my Macbook and I followed Application Distribution page instructions on the Electron website. So right now when I double click on my electron.app folder it runs my application perfectly. However, when I transfer that folder to my Windows machine, it just shows a folder. When I double click on the folder it just shows me its contents. How can the package be run on the Windows? I don’t care about my code being exposed to others. I just want to be able to run it on Windows. Is the only way of doing so through making an exe file?
Each platform handles execution of programs in its own way, so yes, you have to make separate distributions for each platform.
