This applies to Mac OS 10.12 and any MXWendler version

Problem:

You start Stage Designer, and a warning appears that a certain folder could not be created due to a read-only filesystem path

Background:

Under OSX Sierra, Gatekeeper dislocates unsigned applications to random paths on start

Solution:

Disable Gatekeeper
Open Terminal as Administrator
Type sudo spctl --master-disable
Reinstall Stage Designer
This may affect your security settings

Long Term Solution:

Switch from OSX to a real operating system
