I have a lot of Accordance modules. In fact, I love your software.


However, recent versions of Accordance seem to store the modules inside the user's home directory. Normally this is what you want, it overcomes user permission issues.


In my case however, my wife and I have separate accounts so that she can have her icons, desktop, and folders, and I can have mine. This way we don't have to worry about accidentally closing browser tabs on each other, etc. We retain each other's passwords, it's not a security thing, more of a convenience thing.


That said, this results in having to manage 2 separate Accordance installs because beginning some time around version 10, this migrated from the shared Accordance folder into a per-user folder.


The downside to this is not only the mass duplication of modules on disk and the associated waste, it's also the duplication of bandwidth and associated expense involved in keeping things up to date. I imagine at some point, this will also involve a conversation about Easy Install no longer working due to activation count, which is silly, because it's Accordance, on the same computer used by husband and wife in the same home.


Help? I think having the Modules folder be shared across a married couple on the same computer should not be problematic.

If you are able to make very very sure you never ever both have Accordance open at the same time. (i.e. fully quit accordance before signing out). I imagine if you forget, something bad might happen :D


In OS X a folder in one users home folder are can be shared into another users home folder area, using a terminal command:
