Hi Thad,

I cant remember the OS version, but a few years ago we had a similar issue with an applesript command that tried to access the calendar entries ("tell finder") - when Apple included calendar entries into their privacy control it killed our AppleScript requests.

So it may not be restricted to every AppleScript call, but perhaps one that is accessing something that is now protected by the OS privacy features?

We have had better luck with code signing in 8.1.6 since then.
