Folder Actions - Help!
I need help enabling Folder Actions; I wonder if anyone know exactly which System Folder components are needed (I've followed which ones Apple mentions and which seem obvious, but without success). I only recently found the idea useful and want to try them out, but with my system being what it is (I've cleaned it, cut it and hacked it to bits) I can't seem to get it to work.

Thanks for the help in advance. : )

I would suggest a clean system install. Yes, I know, it's a pain in the butt, but we pay for our haste in trashing parts of the system we do not understand, don't we?

Believe me, I know, I work with about 40 macs every day.

Hi BlackMac,

If you're unable or unwilling to perform a clean install, try enabling the following System Folder items (if you haven't already done so):-

Contextual Menu Items:
Folder Actions Menus

Contextual Menu Extension
Folder Actions
Shared Library Manager
Shared Library Manager PPC
SOMobjects™ for Mac OS

As mentioned in the Finder's 'Mac Help' info, the 'Simple Finder' preference should also be inactive.

Thanks guys,

I found in the end that I had enabled all needed extensions, etc., except SOMobjects... When I did, I got Folder Actions to work plus a couple of extra CMMs that I couldn't figure out why they wouldn't work.

Thanks again.
