    Running Mac LOTRO Beta off a External Hard Drive

    Due to lack of space and permissions, I am unable to install LOTRO in the standard Applications folder in the internal disk drive. After installing on the drive, it verifies and is able to be launched. However, once past the "initialising" and "downloading" screens, it is stuck in a permanent loop with the words "An update error has occured". It has the task "retry", counting down from 60 and then starting again.

    I am aware of this post:
    which solves this problem on an internal disk drive. Since I have already reinstalled (step 3), tried launching through the resource folder (step 2), and am unaware of how to properly rename the app (step 1), I am confused. Any piece of help is appreciated, such as how to properly rename.
