18.104.22.168 breaks Applescript 'open' command
22.214.171.124 FMPro Adv
Operating system version
OS X 10.8.2
Description of the issue
This applescript worked just fine until I updated to FMPro Adv 126.96.36.199:
tell application "FileMaker Pro Advanced"
open alias "OS X:Users:vangelon:Documents:Filemaker files:Pword.fmp12" with passwords "blahblahblah" for Accounts "myaccount"
The "open" line chokes saying "Apple event timed out" and it puts up the 'Open File' dialog in Filemaker. So it is not getting the file to open or putting in the account and password info in the background like it was supposed to.
Steps to reproduce the problem
Run the applescript above and line with "open" fails
Expect FMPro to open the file without asking for user account or password
Applescript error and file does not open, the open file dialog appears in FMPro
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
FileMaker Pro Advanced got an error: AppleEvent timed out. (this error appears in Script Debugger 5... Filemaker app launches but does not open the file like it used to.
GUI scripting works, but it is ugly.
tell application "Finder"
open "OS X:Users:vangelon:Documents:Filemaker files:Pword.fmp12" -- change path here
activate application "FileMaker Pro Advanced"
tell application "System Events"
tell process "FileMaker Pro Advanced"
set value of text field 1 of window "Open “DATABASE_NAME”" to "ACCOUNT_NAME" -- insert account name here, insert DATABASE_NAME ("myDB" if file opened is "myDB.fmp12")
set value of text field 2 of window "Open “DATABASE_NAME”" to "PASSWORD" -- insert password & database name here
click button "OK" of window "Open “DATABASE_NAME”" -- insert database name here
click button "Find" of tool bar 1 of window "DATABASE_NAME" --insert database name here, too
keystroke tab -- forward tab key, moves to first text field so user can type search term, alter or delete this line if you want to start searching another field
