I have a toolbox that I have created for deployment within our team. All the inherent functionality seems to work fine.
However, I have a primary GUI that I would like the user to be able to launch from the APPS tab. I know how to package an APP and I know how to package a toolbox... How do I package an APP in a toolbox? If I do them separately, then it becomes a mess of ensuring that relative path calls all work.
Many thanks.

Since no one answered, I'll leave this for posterity.
To have an APP install automatically with a distributed TOOLBOX, simply save the *.mlappinstall file in the toolbox directory. Then when compiling the toolbox, be sure to Refresh the area with Help, Documentation, and Apps.
Take care that you compile the APP using the same source files as the toolbox, otherwise, the APP may have dependency problems.
