Peform Applescript timing out at 2 minutes




I am executing a Perform Applescript step with "with timeout" statements in the applescript, yet it continues to timeout at 2 minutes.


The Applescript target application continues to run, however filemaker at 2 minutes receives the timeout from Applescript and proceeds with the next step in the code. The Applescript target app cannot be communicated with via Applescript as it is still executing a task. If I run the Applescript outside of filemaker the timeouts work. 


Is there anyway to control the applescript timeout that appears to be fixed when using Perform Applescript within filemaker? 


The only work around I can think of is to take the Applescript out of filemaker and execute it on the OS, rather then from within filemaker.
