Thumbs up

Success! ... mostly. VPC 6 DOES run now, so the bottom line is complete success. I'm a little confused, however.

I did a little more than you suggested. I created a new copy script using the original safety clone script as suggested. On the 3rd tab, however, in addition to COPYing the VPC folder I also SHAREd several folders including the containing folder of VPC. That is, I have a special folder in the root of Macintosh HD named Apps (different from Applications), and inside that folder at the 1st level is the VPC folder. I wanted to share all the files inside Apps with the exception of wanting to copy VPC. So, I made Copy VPC the last line on the 3rd tab figuring it would override the earlier command to share Apps.

However, after I cloned and restarted from Sandbox, it indicates that all of Apps is shared INCLUDING VPC. (I much prefer to share VPC rather than copy it because it is so huge; but, of course, I was trying to copy it.) So, was I wrong in assuming that the later lines in tab 3 override the earlier lines? Regardless, VPC runs just fine now. I took the time to shut down VPC (as opposed to saving the state) before cloning so maybe that made the difference?

Here's another quirk. Several files in the Login Items startup preference pane list as unknown, yet they were correctly loaded. These include Alepin, Bookit Menu, escapepod, Fkey Listener, Launchbar, Meeorologist, Seti Menu, Show Desktop, SnapZ Pro, Temperature Monitor Light, and Microsoft Database Daemon. (Actually, only the latter appears not to have loaded which is excellent by me. I haven't been able to get rid of it up to now). Also, iClock 1.30 was MISSING from the Login Items yet it correctly loaded! I guess I have no complaints because everything is working exactly the way I want. Again, thanks so much for a wonderful program.

Now that I know how all this works, I get to configure the computer of an 84 year old friend who I enticed into purchasing SuperDuper!.
