Applescript - Fetch does not quit (6 posts)

    I need some help to quit...

    I am using Applescript to script Fetch. I am trying to figure out how to quit the application without erroring out.

    if I run the following:

    tell application "Finder"
    activate

    set ftp_url to "ftp://ftp.fetchsoftworks.com/"

    tell application "Fetch"
    activate
    open (url ftp_url)

    delay 7

    end tell

    -- I do my stuff here...

    -- AND SO FAR SO GOOD. Then I'd like to quit...

    tell application "Fetch"
    activate
    --try

    quit

    --on error
    -- do nothing
    --end try

    end tell

    -- and if I comment out the try & end try, Fetch shows the error: connection is Invalid...

    Can anybody help?

    Thank you
    Maurizio

    There was at least one version of Fetch with a bug in this area, but I believe the bug has been fixed. Have you tried your script with Fetch 5.2.1 (the latest release)?

    Thanks,

    Jim,
    I am still on OS 10.3.5.
    I'll use try & end try until I upgrade both OS and Fetch.
    Thanks

    Hi Maurizio,

    If you don't want to update your OS X right now, we do still have Fetch 5.0.5 available, which works on Mac OS X 10.2.4 or later.

    If that's newer than the version you're using now, you might want to give it a try and see the problem is fixed in it.

    (Or, you can update to Mac OS X 10.3.9 - which is less drastic than updating to 10.4 - and use Fetch 5.2.1.)

    You can download it from http://fetchsoftworks.com/downloads.html .

    Thanks,
