I've just fallen into yet another black pit: File permissions. I created another user on my machine to test multi user access to my app to find it could not gain write access to some special files I maintain in a folder at the same level as the app. I suppose the official line is that anything I want the application to remember as directed by the user should be saved in the preferences folder belonging to that user?
Am I the only one who has developed an intense dislike for that system (as a user not a developer)? It has always bugged me that when I personalise an app it can't simply stay that way when I need to do a clean install of the OS and in particular as a developer I've changed OSs more often than my shirt and believe me that doesn't give my shirts long to gather any BO.
I suppose I can see why this is so under OS X as multiple users of the same app on the same computer will want different prefs but I'm creating software for use in a MIDI studio that is most likely to be used by one user on one computer (nobody's sharing my four machines that's for sure) and I can see a lot of work rolling out before me for the sake of exceptional circumstances.
