    I have download:
    Regina-REXX-3.4-universal.pkg.dmg
    onto my MacBook and installed it with no apparent problems.  Can someone enlighten me and tell me where it is on my machine?  I have looked in my
    Applications folder and my Downloads folder and can't seem to find it.

    Thanks.

      Can't offer a solution,  but Ive got the same problem on my MAC desktop.  I'm running Leopard,  what are you on? 

      I had a look in the log file and it seemed to have installed everything in a temporary folder and then deleted it!   Ive tried rerunning it,  thinking I missed some kind of "preferences" option,  but nothing is very obvious.     Most frustrating; I used to use REXX and always thought it is a superb product.

      Regards

      Having done all that again I can't find anything on the system with a name remotely like "Regina" or "Rexx" !  To my untrained eye it looks like it extracts to the temp directory about 20 lines from the bottom,  then deletes it .

      Any ideas anyone?

        This is clearly a failure at install time.  The team assigned to providing and testing the installation routines will need to address this one.

      On my Mac, rexx and regina are in /usr/bin. Dates are Jan 9 of this year.

      I found these in Terminal with locate rexx and locate regina.

      I run regina (or rexx) from Terminal, too. I don't know if there is a more Mac-like way to run it.

      WELL DONE Alan!  Yes,  Ive found it there too.  I had been searching for it using Spotlight;  I didnt realise that Spotlight doesnt look down at that level.

      If anyone can point us towards how to build all these separate lumps into an Mac-like .app it would be appreciated..

      Regards
