Unable to Send Event "aevt";"oapp" to Applescript saved as application


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

Unable to set an Applescript saved as application to a Send Event script step if the Applescript was created with Mac OS X 10.6.x. Snow Leopard.  The Applescripts saved as application in earlier OS versions such as 10.5.x and 10.4.x do not have this problem.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create an Applescript and save it as an application in Mac OS X 10.6.x  Create a script in FileMaker Pro.  >>Move>> a Send Event script step into the script window.  Select Specify.  Select Specify Application... button in "Send Event" Options window.  Navigate to the applescript application just created.  Select it and click on the Open button.  The Target Application: will be blank.

Send Event ["Enter";"aevt";oapp"; Enter"]

Actual result

Send Event["aevt";"oapp"]


I can execute the Applescript application by double clicking on it in the Finder.
