      The dvtool script only works on the Mac if you extract the DVTool
      folder to your desktop. The problem is with the PATH. The script
      sets it properly for DVTool on the desktop.

      If you choose not to put DVTool on the desktop, you will need to
      change the path so that the DVTool folder is there.
