The part in the article about saving to the user's documents folder is handy to know. As it happens, at least on my machine I am allowed to do the save even if the application is in Applications.

I picked up on this topic because I am about to need to do the same thing, only on an iPad, and there I am expecting to have to go to more trouble. Also, there will be an advantage I suspect in doing a clone of the stack to the documents folder, because it ought to survive an application update.
