Redline Preferences and OSX Lion

Post  GUMMY BEAR on Mon Feb 20, 2012 10:15 pm

I went looking for my redline preference file today which it seems I haven't dont since Lion came out. With Snow Leopard I would have gone to user>library>preferences. There seems to be no redline pref file here though. I did a search and got nothing as well. Does anyone know where Lion stores the preference file? Does it even exist anymore? It must... where?

It's still at the same spot.
Lion hides its library so you can't see it.

Try in finder to "go to folder" (shift-Command-g) and Type /Users/YOURUSERNAME/Library/Preferences . in the finder window type redline and you should have the prefs-file (or the license-file) selected.

Its' still there. My spotlight search doesn't show a result. I guess you have to go there manually via finder (by pressing the ALT-key in the GO TO-menu)

It's handy to include system files in finder search aswell. press the + sign, select system files include.

Thank you this seems to have worked. Its a pain in the ass that they hide this stuff. And they call this progress...
