Firstly, Happy New Year.
It has started well for me because with the help of the list I have solved the above. Last problem of 2009, and first solution of 2010!
I tried pretty much all the suggestions. (I skipped the suggestion of saving to the standalone folder, because the Windows virtualisation dragon would eat the data.)
I relabelled the path to avoid non vanilla characters...
I rescripted to save by changing the defaultfolder.
In fact, I rescripted several times to use different methods. All worked in OS X, and none worked in Windows.
As far as I can make out, the problem is something to do with representing the path as a variable. If the path was in quotes, it worked OK both as a script and in the message box. If defined as a variable, it didn't work. The solution was simply to refer directly to the line in the field containing the full path. So,
set the imageSource of last char of fld "ResultsT" to "binfile:" & the last line of field "snapshots"
worked, but ......
put the last line of field "snapshots" into k
set the imageSource of last char of fld "ResultsT" to "binfile:" & k
The only thing I could think of is that on Win a character in the URL which is benign on the Mac is interpreted as part of the address, but only when copied into a variable, not when read directly from the field. Anyhoo. Fixed now.
Now to get going with ScreenSteps, and make a manual.
Thanks again for all the suggestions.
