CS3 "Application not running"

This is odd.

I’ve got a fairly involved script I wrote on a Mac Pro, running Tiger, latest version. I need to show it off so I moved it to my Powerbook.

It targets Idesign CS3 within a Filemaker Pro tell block.

Compiling finds Filemaker pro, but it cannot find CS3.

I have verified that I have no other Indesign involved and that the spelling is correct. I have copied and pasted the app name.

For instance, the below yields a syntax error: “Application is not running”. The app is doing fine that I can tell.

But it cannot find application “Adobe InDesign CS3”

tell application "Adobe InDesign CS3"
end tell

This was generated by selecting Indesign in the Script Editor’s Library “new script” button. I added the activate.

This is probably something stupid, but it escapes me and the presentation is coming up. I did not see anything that touched it in the archives and Google had litte, thanx, sam

Thanks for looking. I think I have this figured out.

Apparently Script Editor keeps stuff like the applications in memory. I quit then restarted the app and it compiled as expected, thanx, sam
