When using the File.applicationStorageDirectory function, where is Adobe storing the program on an Windows/Apple computer? I know what it means, but I would just like to be able to verify for myself that the file is being created when I'm developing my application.

Hiding that was a change in Mountain Lion I think. You can get there by choosing Go to Folder in Finder (from the Go menu), and enter this:

/Users/irobot/Library/

For the Mac, I don't see a "Library" folder under my username and I am an Administrator. See attached image.Screen Shot 2014-09-08 at 7.03.21 PM.png

You can also access the "Library" folder from the Finder by holding down the alt key while selecting the Go menu. The Library menu item is hidden and revealed by the alt key.
