Referencing modal pop-up windows while GUI scripting

Ray: I did your suggestions and the system prefs allowed permissions to be granted to the newly compiled app. However, the spinning wheel went on for 2 minutes as usual, indicating the failure. Strange that only this app fails while others work fine…and that this app works OK on your machine. Tim

FINAL ANSWER: I opened the offending script in Apple’s Script Editor and exported it as an app. Works fine.

Conclusion: THERE IS A BUG IN Script Debugger.

A bug is highly unlikely unless you’ve saved as an enhanced applet. Can you compress and email the offending applet to support?


(Tim Burton) #25

The offending app has been sent by email as a *.zip

Thank you for doing that.

Thanks for sending the file. The problem is that you are saving it in debugging mode. Open it, turn off debugging, then save it again.

Shane: Ahah! Solved by turning off debugger. Many thanks. BTW, I found out about your sqlite 3 utility and am most impressed by its functionality. Tim
