Changing Keychain Minder’s displayed text using Xcode

I was recently asked about my organization’s Keychain Minder application, as I had altered the displayed text to better meet my organization’s needs.

For those who also want to do this for their own organization, see below the jump for the procedure I’ve used.

Update – July 6, 2012 – Keychain Minder does not appear to be currently available on the AFP548 site. I’ve posted a zipped copy of Keychain Minder 1.5 on my GitHub repo for those who need it.

Pre-requisites:

Latest version of Apple’s Xcode

Latest version of Keychain Minder

1. Open Xcode and then select your Keychain Minder application.
