First things first, you should definitely get permission to run BOINC on your company network before continuing further. Many corporations have policies against programs such as BOINC, and using them is considered theft of company resources (spare CPU cycles and internet transmissions that you did not obtain permission for), with many employees ending up fired over situations like this.

...the only thing I was not able to do was to edit or create a file for a given folder on the computer, because that is where the item is on a Windows PC and I'm on a Macintosh...

I can't believe that there's no BOINC data folder on the Macintosh.

There is a data directory on the Mac, but that's all moot until he gets permission from his work to run BOINC on his computer.
