Check For Updates denied on Sierra when iTerm is in a subdir of /Applications
- iTerm2 version: 3.0.10
- OS version: 10.12.0
No prefs to attach, this happens even when installed fresh and no prefs exist yet.
Detailed steps to reproduce the problem:
- Put iTerm.app into some subfolder of /Applications, say, /Applications/foo
- Launch iTerm.app
- Try to "Check for Updates"
What happened: I see a dialog box with this: "iTerm2 can’t be updated when it’s running from a read-only volume like a disk image or an optical drive. Move iTerm2 to your Applications folder, relaunch it from there, and try again."
What should have happened: It should've checked for updates. It should not have claimed that it's running from a read-only volume or optical drive, because it isn't. Also, the new security "features" of Sierra shouldn't be blocking this, because it's not being launched from the Downloads folder. I moved the .zip into /Applications/foo and then unpacked it. I would think that subdirs of /Applications would be fair game.
