I have a script in one of my applications that works fine using version 2.4. The script fails for one of my clients. They have applescript editor version 2.3.

I can't figure out what to tell them to do to upgrade their applescript editor to 2.4.

Any suggestions?

I don't believe the AS editor can be upgraded on its own... it comes along with the OS. For example I am on Mavericks 10.9.2 and AS editor is version 2.6.1.

So I think the answer is going to be your client will need to update to a later OS X version.

Hi

Although it's not 100% impossible, I'd be surprised if the version of AppleScript Editor is the cause of your problem. Could you save the code as an app, perhaps, and see if the problem remains? If so, I think it's probably safe to say that it's nothing to do with AppleScript Editor.

As other posters have commented, it's hard to troubleshoot this one for you without seeing error message(s) and , if possible, your code.

You might have them copy the script over to a text editor, and then back into their version of Applescript. Sometimes a retokenization helps when moving between versions, and a pass thru plain text will force that.
