    safe so agreed to let me try to install it. i have no clue - things dont
    insta,l on mac like windows..... but i got icon an desktop that says password and if i click on it it opens and i have added some example entries
    for her.

    but on exit is complains and says erro on saving preferences; file or
    directory does not exist. pw safe file is saved.... on windows I DO have
    preferences but I have no clue where to find a preference or config file on
    this mac thing,

    Hi Vickie,

    when installing on a Mac the app File is like a virtual read only hard drive.
    You have to "install" jpwsafe by dragging it out of that folder and typically
    into your app folder.

    Then jpwsafe should be able to save it's preferences.

    Next would be to check the user directory on the command line (shell)

    jpwsafe expects a user home dir (like /home/<username>) and tries to save it's
    preferences there in a .jpwsafe folder.

    Hope that helps?
