Application gets stuck on splash screen

I have an application I am trying to launch in a script but when I call it by either…

tell application"PitStop Server"

or launch application “PitStop Server”

it bounces in the dock and the splash screen comes up and thats it. I have to manually click on the icon in the dock to get the application to run. I can lauch the application by double clicking it with out problems just not through an applescript.

Any thoughts?


hi kerry,

does this work:

do shell script "/usr/bin/open -a \"/Applications/PitStop\""

or whatever the path is?

Thanks Waltr that did the trick.
