Mac OS X

In the default installation the Price Checker 2 executable is found at:

Code Block
"C:\Program Files\Price Checker 2.2\PriceChecker2.exe"

Replace C:\Program Files\Price Checker 2.2 with your actual installation directory if necessary. Note that this is different from the Data Directory.

The default on Mac OS will be:

/Applications/Price\ Checker\

If you installed it outside of Applications or changed the app name, just replace /Applications/Price\ Checker\ accordingly.

Please note that the \ is an escaped space character. The alternative is to enclose the entire executable name in quotations marks, just like on windows.
