    I have a large number of Applescripts on a G5 which need to be converted to a Mac Pro. However, Script Editor won't open them on the Mac Pro. I Googled and searched the Apple site and a few other site but so far haven't come up with any insights other than going to the G5 opening the file in Script Editor and pasting each by each into text files, which I will do if I have to--but yuck.

    Anyone have any other thoughts?

    Once an AppleScript has been saved as an application, you can't convert it or do anything with it besides execute/launch it. You will need to re-open the original scripts in Script Editor, and save as "application bundle".

    Actually, if you didnt check "run only" when saving, you can edit it in Script Editor. :)
