Okay for those of you who care about this sort of thing:
This works to get the names of all open windows from the Process Viewer. It works in the script editor
tell application "System Events"
get name of every window of every process
return the result
but when I attempt this in LC I get an execution error:
put "tell application " & quote & "System Events" & quote & cr into tScript
put tab & "get name of every window of every process" & cr after tScript
put tab & "return the result" & cr after tscript
put "end tell" after tscript
do tscript as applescript
put the result
I had to add the LC app in accessibility the first time it ran, but afterwards I get execution error as the result.

I mean dying dog with 2 broken legs and a clowder of cats scratching it's eyes out slow. I've checked Applescript forums too. Apprently there is no damned good way to tell if a file is open on a Mac without using the API provided by the OS. Sometimes Apple takes my breath away. And not in a good way.
