Please follow these steps to resolve the permissions error on a mac:

  1. Open the Library\Application Support\Softest folder
  2. Locate a file titled Softest.datn and right click the file.SofTestFilePath.jpg

  3. From the menu select "Get Info."  A new window will appear. Here you will need to change the permissions to the file.

  4. Look for the sharing and permissions settings at the bottom of the window, then click the lock on the bottom right to make changes.
