If it's crashing in the simulator but not on the device it may be a 
problem with the simulator configuration.  If it crashes on both it may 
be a bug in LiveCode.

But I think John's main point was that there is no "Preferences" folder 
on iOS.

See the Dictionary entry for "specialFolderPath" for a list of supported 
constants available for each OS.
