OS X: Where do various programs store licensing information?
October 5, 2010 3 Comments
Have you wondered where some programs store the licensing data, or various information to account for time limited or to count for limited demo/test licenses?
Well, these files should be shared between all users. Then… take a look at /Users/Shared!
With the default configuration, Finder will probably not show you what you expect, but open a Terminal window and type
ls -lA /Users/Shared
You’ll probably notice some hidden files, with names starting with dot. Deleting some might even reset your demo licenses!
