setting creation and modification date problem

I have an old 10.4 install with SetFile from Sept 12, 2006. Using that gives me the same results so this didn’t solve the problem for me. I’m going to try Craig’s obj-c code now and will report back.

Thank you Craig! :smiley:

Using your suggested code I finally have a working solution! I posted the tool, the code, and a suggested applescript for using it on my website. You can see it here:

You are very welcome. Glad I could help!

I like all the error checking. That makes this very useful and distributable.

Good job on the website post. I am sure there are a lot of people who will find this useful. There really is very little on the internet on how to do this.
