Chapter 21. AppleScript > Script Runner

Script Runner

In Mac OS X 10.0 and 10.1, there is a significant change in how user interaction takes place during a script. Dialogs and other scripting additions are not recognized when running a compiled script. This results in errors when using functions such as display dialog.

Until Apple addresses this issue, there are two potential workarounds: run all scripts from within the Script Editor, or use the Script Runner to execute your AppleScripts. The Script Runner will correctly load additions and enables AppleScripts to function identically to their Mac OS 9 counterparts.
