I know that my topic doesn’t really fit in this section but, I wasn’t sure where else to ask this. Ok, a liitle backstory: I’ve got the game Mighty Mike (a.k.a Power Pete) set up to launch when my installation of Mac OS 9.0.4 launches in SheepShaver. I then want a script (also in the start up items folder) to check if Mighty Mike is running & if it isn’t, it then tells Finder to shut down. Here’s what I have so far:
tell application "Finder" if exists (some process whose name contains "Mighty Mikeâ„¢") then beep else tell application "Finder" shut down end tell end if end tell
If I launch the script in the AppleScript editor & run it & then quit the editor, SheepShaver shuts down/quits as expected. But, if the script is in the Start Up Items folder & I quit Mighty Mike, the Script Editor just adds on blank lines to the beginning of the script. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
