I recently used Migration Assistant to transfer everything to a new Mac. Accordance wont work offline anymore. If I try to I get a validation screen. If I fill this in while online, it still doesnt work when offline. This is really annoying and renders Accordance almost useless to me. I also get a "the file ".fdr54j38a" cannot be modified..." error.

(using 10.8 and Accordance 9.6.6)

You need to find the folder named Accordance in Library/Application Support. (It may be in the hard drive Library or the user Library, and to see the latter on Lion/ML you can press option as you open the Go menu.)

Get info on the Accordance folder from the File menu, unlock the permissions at the bottom, set it to give your user read/write permission, and then click the gear menu to apply those permissions to all enclosed contents.

This is a common problem after migrating or restoring from backup, especially on Lion+.

You may find that the folder belongs to system and wheel and not to you. You can delete the wheel, and add yourself as the owner.
