Installer silently fails to launch on MacOSX

When launching my latest installer on MacOSX, it shows the splash screen then shuts down.

Digging into the installer app and running the installer from the command line, I get the following stack trace:

java.awt.IllegalComponentStateException: The frame is decorated

	at Flexeraat7.setBackground(Unknown Source)

Re: Installer silently fails to launch on MacOSX

Nevermind - this is the dark-mode issue.

Switching MacOSX to Light appearance before running the installer resolves the issue.
