Description Chris Hamons 2016-01-14 15:47:54 UTC
As you can see here, we point to /usr/share

https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mcs/class/corlib/System/Environment.cs#L738

but on OS X 10.11 SIP (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_Integrity_Protection) will not let you write to this location.

I am unsure if we can change this location in a backwards compatible manor, but it was requested by a XM customer.
