delay 10
run application "primary:Applications:SafariDepot:Scripts:Uplo ad Safari Bookmarks.app"
end run
end delay
I created the code above to run the "upload safari bookmarks.app" application. The program runs fine and dandy.

Here's the problem, at the end of running the application I get a "connection is invalid" error, I click on "OK" and that's it.

Why is this popping up? Is there any way to automatically click on that "OK"? Or maybe I wrote the small script wrong?

Suggestions?

I downloaded SafariDepot just to have the executable, but didn't configure it.

Try this on for size:

code:
try
tell application "Mac HD:Applications:SafariDepot:Scripts:¬
Upload Safari Bookmarks.app"
activate
end tell
end try

NUMERO! THANK YOU!!! Works perfectly!

I have no idea what the "try" command is for, but that made the difference I've tried using "tell" before, but that didn't work for me.
