Fetch 5.7.7 Automator Auto-Download repeated errors under macOS 10.13.6 (3 posts)

    Hi Jim,

    For many years we've been using Fetch for auto upload/download of important data to our servers and it used to work fantastic. However the last couple of months we've run into a snag and its really problematic now.

    We updated to our servers that run macOS 10.13.6 with the recommended (latest) macOS security update and when our Automator workflow alarm tries to download the file Fetch/AppleEvents(??) keeps on getting an AppleEvent time out error. How can we debug this? If we run this step by step under Automator everything works. But the calendar app we made fails with this.

    We have a macOS 10.11.x machine that has taken over this task and works fine but we use 2 other servers for redundancy and we would rather use macOS 10.13.6.

    Could you contact me at ? I'd be interested in seeing a screenshot of your calendar event, and any sort of error message you receive.
