ODB StartupItems File

Hi All,

I have the Omnis Data Bridge (v1.5.4)  installed on a Mavericks machine and have a Studio 5 library connecting to the data file just fine.  Now I want to automate the ODB start up so the client doesn't have to do it themselves any time the server is restarted.

I downloaded the scripts from Omnis-dev and installed the OmnisDataBridge file in /Macintosh HD/Libraray/Startupitems/ and restarted the machine.  Upon start up I received the following message:

“/Library/StartupItems/OmnisDataBridge” has not been started because it does not have the proper security settings."

I changed the security settings via the Get Info box to allow read/write to all listed Names.  I even added Administrators and gave them read/write privileges to see if that would work.  I get the same error message every time.  Is this a permissions setting that needs to be changed at the command line?  Does the OmnisDataBridge file still work?  The scripts that came with it indicate that they are PowerPC...
