Not sure if this helps: I just put this in the message box in the IDE and hit enter, and it created the folder successfully. I don’t remember ever specifically allowing LC to do that, but then I think I have given LC permissions to modify files on the OS drive. 

put "~/Library/Application Support/FormsGen" into tFoldername;create folder tFolderName
