Title

Filemaker and Applescripts under Snow Leopard

Post

I should have known this would happen. Every time Apple comes out with a new OS my script for loading pictures into Filemaker breaks. Every time, and now Snow Leopard keeps up this dubious tradition.

If this happened in Windoze, the whole world would be screaming about how incompetent they are. 

 

So, after my script stops working following an install of Snow Leopard, I start monkeying with the script to make it work but now Applescript is saving scripts into ".app" directories and guess what? Filemaker won't execute them because it doesn't save the file name in the FileMaker script. Then when you run the script, it says "The file '<unknown>' could not be found..." Filemaker will still run the older script that was not recompiled but then the script doesn't work.

 

Nice.
