java.lang.IllegalStateException

The platform metadata area could not be written: /private/var/folders/h9/qt1grktd6j3frwtjrh9s_jv40000gp/T/AppTranslocation/F908A5B2-629A-4386-8FA2-9D84DBE40A08/d/scouter.client.app/Contents/MacOS/workspace/.metadata. By default the platform writes its content under the current working directory when the platform is launched. Use the -data parameter to specify a different content area for the platform.
