  • "osascript wants to make changes. Type your password to allow this."

    Why do I get this prompt every time I open VE Pro? Version number is 4.1.11889 (64-bit) on Mac OS 10.8.5

  • Hi AaronG,

     

    Have you installed VE Pro 4 from scratch under MacOS 10.8.5 or have you migrated it from another machine? Perhaps an uninstall (with the provided Uninstaller!) and clean re-install could help.

     

    That osascript message happens, when the OS file handle settings havenĀ“t been properly modified for some reason.

     

    It could be that some other application messed with it after the VE Pro installation procedure.

     

    Either way, the message itself is absolutely harmless, although I totally understand it is annoying...

     

    Best, Marnix


  • Thanks, I'll try that.

  • Hello,

    I had the same problem, but with VEP5 (last version). I followed Paul's offline suggestion. I desinstalled VIP and VEP and I installed them again. The strange message disappeared.

    Hope this will help.

  • Happy user here, with same minor problem here on two Mac Pro's.

    No major headache, just a tad irritating when setting startupscripts for slaves.

    Tried clean uninstall and reinstall, same issue on two CPU's.

    Latest greatest MacOSX 10.9.1 and VEP 5.3.13045

    Grateful for any help


  • Just a bump if somebody has a sec? Is there a fix of sorts?


  • Bump,

    Still having this issue all the time after trying everything suggested in this thread and  reinstalls.

    Not a biggie but a minor irritation when starting up every morning.

    Would really appreciate a fix...

    thanx!


  • Hi, 

    Does that also happen with the latest version?

    This happens quite rarely, and Marnix already explained the background a bit... 

    Anyone else having the same issue here?

    Best, 

    Paul

  • Thanx for reply.

    Yes, has happened with every new version on my two Mac Pros.


  • Hi houser,

    We believe you have some software installed which changes the system limits settings on boot.

    Unfortunately we donĀ“t have any other pointers... any "exotic" software installed on your computer?

    Best,

    Paul

  • No esoteric stuff installed, no. AFAIK.

    Plain vanilla OSX 10.9xx and latest greatest VE Pro.

    Odd that it is only me, if that is the case...

    Ah well.

    I am serious about maintaining  my workstations and see no other problems.

    Just inconvenient...if you have any hint I would appreciate it!

    thanx again


  • Try reinstalling VE Pro. That dialog will only pop up when a change that the installer is supposed to make was somehow reverted.


  • I have done that a few times, and did it again now.

    Used the uninstaller to uninstall VEP5.

    Installed VEP 5.3.13151

    Restarted Mac Pro.

    Launched VEP 5

    Same dialog pops up

    Any helpful hints are appreciated...


  • Just a bump as I am getting tired of this one. Any chance of a way to fix this?


  • Hi,

    Just in case: I uninstalled both VIP and VEP (v.5).

    C.B.


  • Thanx C.B.

    I have uninstalled an reinstalled every single version since 4 just to be sure but the message still lingers.

    Just a tad irritating. Would be great to get rid of it.

    thanx again


  • Got tired of this one and decided to hunt it down. Found it...

    It was a conflict with Mac OSX server that was backing up via Time Machine.

    Would be great if VEP could be compatible with OSX server app running without asking for the OSA script password.

    thanx!

    Getting some text from the console syslog that probably does not help, but here it is:
