Frameworks softlinks are removed by InstallAnywhere on MacOS

I have a project containing a number a number of .app packages, each one installed by a speed folder. I've put the .app packages in the projects "packages" directory, then created Speed Folders to capture them and add them to the installations.

There are frameworks in the packages, and I've verified that the softlinks for Resources, the Binary and Versions/Current are correct. However, when I build the project and install, the softlinks are removed.

Does anyone know how to keep InstallAnywhere from removing these links?


In Contents/Frameworks/Ruby.Frameworks:

~/InstallAnywhere 2018 Projects/Frameworks/packages> ls -al SketchUp.app/Contents/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/
drwxr-xr-x 5  Domain Users 160 May 7 08:19 .
drwxr-xr-x 8  Domain Users 256 May 7 08:32 ..
lrwxr-xr-x 1  Domain Users 24 May 7 08:19 Resources -> Versions/2.5.5/Resources
lrwxr-xr-x 1  Domain Users 19 May 7 08:19 Ruby -> Versions/2.5.5/Ruby
drwxr-xr-x 4  Domain Users 128 May 7 08:19 Versions

~/InstallAnywhere 2018 Projects/Frameworks/packages> ls -al SketchUp.app/Contents/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions
drwxr-xr-x 4 Domain Users 128 May 7 08:19 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 Domain Users 160 May 7 08:19 ..
drwxr-xr-x 9 Domain Users 288 May 7 08:19 2.5.5
lrwxr-xr-x 1 Domain Users 5 May 7 08:19 Current -> 2.5.5

So everything looks great. After I install, however I get this:

/Applications/Frameworks/_Frameworks_installation> ls -la SketchUp.app/Contents/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/
drwxrwxr-x 5 admin 160 May 7 08:39 .
drwxrwxr-x 8 admin 256 May 7 08:39 ..
drwxrwxr-x 3 admin 96 May 7 08:39 Resources
-rwxrwxr-x 1 admin 8677840 May 6 16:44 Ruby
drwxrwxr-x 4 admin 128 May 7 08:39 Versions

/Applications/Frameworks/_Frameworks_installation> ls -la SketchUp.app/Contents/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions
drwxrwxr-x 4 admin 128 May 7 08:39 .
drwxrwxr-x 5 admin 160 May 7 08:39 ..
drwxrwxr-x 9 admin 288 May 7 08:39 2.5.5
drwxrwxr-x 9 admin 288 May 7 08:39 Current

No more links.
