I am logged in as a regular user (i.e. without Administrator permissions).
I attempt to upgrade MonoDevelop via built-in upgrader.
I provide administrator's credentials when requested, however upgrade still fails due to an authorisation error, please see referenced gist below.
I much prefer to run as an unpriviledged user in Mac OS X (I am using Mountain Lion) and elevate when requested. However I have always found that MonoDevelop/MonoTouch never seem to handle this situation when upgrading, which is bit of a pain to continuing to use it.
Hope you can fix this!
This is very strange, it looks like it's giving us the credentials then refusing to accept them later.
Does it only happen for MonoDevelop updates, or doest it happen for all updates e.g. MonoTouch etc?
Is this still a problem? We haven't got any other report of this issue.
