Delphi XE7 deploying to Macintosh

I've deployed dozens of projects to the Mac hundreds of times.

Today, with the same projects and the same PAServer and the same Mac, all my projects deploy and then run(!) correctly but when I double click on the resulting .app file the Mac says...

"You can't open the application because it may be damaged or incomplete." It shows a white circle with a slash through it over the app's icon.

This happens with two different Macs with two different MacOS versions (but the same PAServer version).

Any ideas what would cause that?

It turns out that modifying CFBundleExecutable from $(ModuleName) to My App Name
caused this problem.
