Save Copy As (Open)  - FMP Adv 11 OSX


I have a script which contains a Save a Copy As script step and have a check in the "After saving:  automatically open file" checkbox.  I have never had a problem with this on my machine (white Macbook laptop running OSX 10.6.4 with 2gb memory), either running source code (FP7) or the compiled version (USR).

However, in distributing the compiled version to 3 beta testers, all 3 of them report that the newly-copied file fails to open up.  It gets copied, but they are forced to exit the program and re-enter to gain access to this new file. I'm baffled by the difference in behavior between the machines and the fact that the majority of them (3 out of 4) fail to perform the task properly.  The "problem" machines are silver MacBook Pro laptops all running 10.6.x and all with at least 2gb of memory.  

Any theories as to why this might be happening?
