I have also posted this in the main forum as I'm not sure if it's more
of a scripting ESTK issue or general InDesign issue.
Silly me. I posted the same question twice on this forum by mistake and
John has rightly locked the other thread. If anyone has any ideas, thank
you in advance. Meanwhile, I will post this on the main forum as it
might get a better response there.
I'm curious what applications .jsx files are supposed to be associated
with (on Windows). I've hitched them up to the ESTK executable and it
doesn't help -- that is, click on a .jsx does indeed open it for editing
in ESTK, but despite the .jsx file beginning with a #target line, the
script does not automatically run.
Just to clarify: suppose you save the following as a .jsx file on your
desktop and double-click it:
alert("I'm pretending to be an application!");
the result should be an alert box appearing (after a security dialog
appearing). It should not be that the script opens for editing in ESTK.
For me that is not happening right now.
So I'm wondering if that's because .jsx files shouldn't actually be
associated directly with Extendscript Toolkit.exe but with some other
helper app that directs them to the right place.
It might be of help if someone could check their working installation
and tell me what .jsx files are associated with.
