This script is meant to watch a folder of image files and catalog added files to an Extensis Portfolio catalog. It has also been used for Canto Cumulus. Everything worked fine under OS 9. I am getting an error under OS X in the “–update Portfolio” area before actually opening the catalog. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

OS version: OS X

property PortfolioDB : "Pentagram Portfolio Archive.fdb" -- the name of the Portfolio gallery
property PortfolioDBPath : alias "Macintosh HD:Applications:Extensis Portfolio 6.1:Pentagram Portfolio Archive.fdb" -- actual path of the Portfolio gallery
