    I've written an app, which requires another app to work.
    Both are in a folder which will be downloaded from the internet.
    So when I launch my AppleScript app is ok. But the AppleScript app is told to lunch another app (a HEX editor) 0xED. While 0xED is lunching its first time after download its showing me the annoying dialog:
    This application was downloaded from the internet. Are you sure that you want to continue?
    this crashes the AppleScript app until someone does not click "OK"

    but the second problem is, that some downloaders may have the 0xED app already. So the dialog wont show up for them.

    So is there any script that would just close all dialog boxes until 0xED would fully launch?

    You haven't thought this through.

    Or you have thought it through and are looking for a way to install a malicious application without the user noticing.

    Which one is it?

    Do you think Apple would let you circumvent measures that are taken to protect users from malicious software? And if there was a way, do you think we would help you?
