I have 2 users on the same iMac.  Both have the music plugin loaded and configured the same.  Both show the music symbol in the personal message area but only one actually shows the music playing on iTunes.  The one not working does not have Admin rights if that is of interest.  I get no error messages.  I do not have the adobe application loaded so no files that I can delete as per older posts on this topic.

PS we both also run Skype and both successfully show music playing.

Hello Smiley This topic was discussed in the forums. By the way, It doesn't work if you have installed Ps or Google Video for GMail. You'll need to delete some files. Again, search in the forum. I can't remember now what files are.

Good Luck Smiley

PD: If you cannot find the posts, ask again and I'll help. We're busy sorry Sad

I did the search before posting but as i said in my original post I do not have the files that are recommended for deletion.  I don't have Ps (?) or Google Video for Gmail installed - in fact I don't have any other plugs installed except for nudge.  In any event both users have the same plugins loaded and one suffers the problem and the other doesn't.

Any other ideas?

it's not about amsn plugins, it's about stuff installed on your system.. press Ctrl-P to get the plugins log and see which error it throws at you, that should tell you what goes wrong and which file to delete if any.

Thanks for the advice.  Used Cmd-P to get the error report:-

osascript: couldn't save changes to script /Applications/aMSN.app/Contents/Resources/Scripts/plugins/music/display_and_send.scpt: Permission denied


So problem seems to be a permission issue.
1. /Users/Julie/Library/Application Support/amsn/plugins/artworkitunes.jpg - checked the permissions on this file and it included Julie with read/write permission.

2. /Applications/aMSN.app/Contents/Resources/Scripts/plugins/music/display_and_send.scpt - changed permission on aMSN.app to include Julie but still no joy.

I'm probably missing something blindingly obvious but I'm brand new to Mac's (only got it last week) and still finding my way - that's my excuse anyway!

I really would appreciate your further help.

ok.. fun fun fun.. I don't know why this stupid thing even tries to overwrite the file.. I guess it's a newer version of osascript and it recompiled it with a new ABI or something... I think the solution would be to ignore whether or not it succeeded in executing the script, but to actually look at the result and hope that those errors are not returned.. but I think it outputs those errors still, so it sucks.. arg.. I hate this!

Is there anything I can do to work around this?

Its odd that only 1of the 2 users of the iMac has this problem??

I don't really know.. but here's a possible solution, open the ScriptEditor  from Applications->Apple Script (if I remember correctly), open the file /Applications/aMSN.app/Contents/Resources/Scripts/plugins/music/display_and_send.scpt
then save it again...
see if it helps.

I fixed the problem.
What I was doing wrong was checking access rights to the file "/Users/Julie/Library/Application Support/amsn/plugins/music/display_and_send.scpt" instead of the file "/Applications/aMSN.app/Contents/Resources/Scripts/plugins/music/display_and_send.scpt"
When I checked the latter I found that Julie did not have read & write permission.  Changed that and hey presto it all worked again.
Thanks form the help.
