I think you can fix the problem by creating ~/.wingide manually. There seems to be a bug in version 1.0's startup/install sequence that fails to create this directory if you place the license.dat file in the floating-locks directory before you ever run Wing. Alternatively, if you put license.dat somewhere else and not in floating-locks, Wing should create ~/.wingide and then prompt you to point to the license.dat file, which it will then copy into place in ~/.wingide. Let us know if none of this helps... and sorry about the inconvenience. - Stephan ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Archaeopteryx Software, Inc.
