Have you checked "the result" function? That is where the result of the 
script will go. If that doesn't help:

A guess is that the Applescript API has changed in OS X 10.3.
Or, your Application names and Path names may have changed if you 
upgraded your OS.

I'm not using applescript in my apps currently, but I can confirm this 
applescript does work on OS X 10.3 from Rev 2.1.2

tell application "Finder"
		display dialog "Hi" buttons {"OK"}
end tell

Hope this helps,
