I'm trying to find one I created years ago on my G4 iMac running Mac OS 10.4.11 so I can copy it and install it on my G5 iMac running Mac OS 10.5.8

 

I've done a Spotlight search for it and tried to track it down using the alias on the desktop for it.

    They are stored wherever you save them. I suspect the default was the /Home/Documents/ folder.

    Hmmm, I was looking at the Get Info box for the script's icon on the desktop and noticed that the extension is ".app" so I zipped it, copied the zipped file to a flashdrive and installed it on the G5. Unfortunately, Automator on the G5 won't run it because the first step in the script is to Launch iTunes. Automator says that I have the wrong version of iTunes installed and that I need to upgrade iTunes to 4.6 (I have iTunes 10 installed). I guess I'll have to try and start from scratch - I remember it took several hours to get it to work before. I want it to launch iTunes playing a particular song, and then launch an email app. Sounds simple but when I followed the steps in Automator's Help file, it didn't work.

    On the G4, did you save it as a Workflow besides an App?, if so I think you'd only need to edit one line/box in Automaror on the G5 that points to iTunes.

    search the G4 for files ending in .workflow

    I honestly don't remember; it was years ago; I'll have to search the G4.

    Duh! I realized that I could do what I wanted to use Automater for by using Log-in Items on the user account on the G5. I don't know why I didn't do the same thing in 10.4.11 on the G4 all those years ago!
