Illustrator CC Extension Preferences aren't being saved

I am trying to save preferences in the onClose function of my extension using the following code:


CSXSInterface.instance.storePreference("shapeStrokeSize", model.shapeStrokeSize.toString());


But the values I save do no persist and I can't find the prefs file. I am checking in:

/Users/mitya/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEPServiceManager4/preference


What am I doing wrong?


Thanks in advance.


PS. The crazy thing is if I run this same extension in CS6 everything works fine.

    Preferences are no longer supported in CC products and are marked as deprecated in the CSXSLibrary. Some alternatives are:

    - Encrypted Local Store in AIR (for non 64 based systems)

    - Database

    - Local encrypted file


    I hope this helps,
