My Automator app won't run on other computers

Hi,

Is there some trick I don't know about to get my Automator app to run on other computers? I'm running OS 10.8.5 with the stock Automator version. I created a test app that only includes "Ask For Finder Items". I saved it as a test.app and it runs fine on my computer but if I put it on a different computer, it doesn't open. When double-clicked, it shows that quick little zoom animation but then it never opens.

Any help is appreciated,

Thanks

Model: OS 10.8 5
Browser: Firefox 31.0
Operating System: Mac OS X (10.8)

Hi Randy, can you post the applet here or send to me via email so I can review and test?

Thanks,
Chuck

Re: My Automator app won't run on other computers

Thanks for the reply. In making a new script to post for you I figured out the problem. I created the Automator script on OS 10.8.5 and was trying to run it on OS 10.6.8.

I recreated it on 10.6.8 and now it runs on 10.6.8 and above, even on 10.9.

Automator is backward compatible but not forward compatible.


Thanks
