    I have about 1700 movies that I want to rename based on metadata and thought it would make sense to learn how to use Automator. So I loaded up a guide, launched Automator... and nothing happened. Automator shows up in my Dock, but no window appears. I clicked File > New, nothing happened. I clicked File -> Open, and I get an error message that says "The operation could not be completed. No other information is available about the problem."

    What did I do?

    I looked in console and I'm getting these errors (please tell me I can copy from the console?)
