User Authentication Failure [Jan. 25th, 2009|02:04 am]


This is going to be a weird one, I don't really expect an answer, BUT...

I have a stay-open application bundle that randomly targets a process running in a switched-out user from the active user with remote apple events on the same machine. Still with me? It worked flawlessly on day one. On day two it's giving me this:

Here's where it gets weird: I can open the file and run it in Script Editor without incident. But if I copy the plain text to a new script application, that app gets the same authentication error. It's not a big issue, I'm sure a restart will fix it, but I guess I wish I knew more about what the hell was going on and why it would be different on two days without a recompile, and not different on the same day through recompiles. I will update this if I learn more.

update: a restart did not fix it, and now it doesn't work at all, and with new errors that prevent me from opening and compiling the code. Oh well.
