I have to use some specific externals in a patch done mainly in pd 
Vanilla. I develop and prepare it on Windows but it will have to be used 
in Mac... (and I am quite analphabet with mac)

In my windows machine, I simply took the .dll files from a pd-extended 
installation and put them in the patch directory so they're found and 
dinamically loaded.

I know I can do the same in Mac so I would like to include the .darwin 
(or whatever the extension is) files in the patch folder too, so that I 
will simply copy the patch folder to the Mac and it will work.

The problem is, I would like to do this (looking for the .darwin files 
and copying them to the patch folder) on the windows Machine so that 
when I have access to the mac I don't waste time. Also, I don't want to 
  INSTALL pd-extended on the Mac because i did it before, and 
uninstalling it was like hell (even after uninstalling, the libraries 
somewhere and somehow persisted and the new fresh pd-vanilla kept 
loading them).

So I tried downloading pd-extended for Mac (a .dmg file) and I sort of 
opened it with a program called 7-zip; but the only thing I find inside 
it is four files:

Looks like some sort of installer or disk image.

How can I unpack it (or download something else somewhere else) and look 
for the single files just like I browse the windows version pd-extended 
folders and dll?
