Nothing happens when I click Open Wallet Config File on my Mac

Symptoms:

Within PIVX Core, clicking Open Wallet Config File does not do anything


Cause:

MacOS has no default program association with the .conf file type. PIVX runs without admin rights for security reasons and so the wallet has to rely on the operating system to know which program to use.


Solution:

Users can make the association manually by opening up the file from the Finder the first time and ticking the checkbox that sets it to “always use this program…”. To find the .conf file in Finder, follow the OSX instructions here: Where is my PIVX data directory?
