- Q: Why can't I copy the Exclamation application into my Applications folder on Mac OS X?
- A #1: Your Mac OS X account must have Admin privileges in order to make changes to your Applications folder. If that's the case and you still cannot put Exclamation into your Applications folder, use the Mac OS X Disk Utitlity (First Aid tab) to repair the permissions on your boot volume.
