    SnpCreateTabbedPaletteScriptUI not working. Help me.

    Pedro Cortez Marques Level 3

      I want to have a new pallete window on my bridge and the SnpCreateTabbedPaletteScriptUI script from SDK samples helped.


      But only when I try it from running from Extendedscript Toolkit CS5.


      When I put it on running from Bridge startup scripts, it doesn't work anymore.

      I guess it has to do with the windows7 itself??? But I don't know.

      I'm running as administrator.
