Script Debugger 4.5.7b1

I am preparing another Script Debugger 4.5 maintenance release.

UPDATE: Script Debugger 4.5.7 has been released.

As was the case with Script Debugger 4.5.5 and 4.5.6, I am struggling to resolve some stability problems that appeared following the release of Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). Resolving these issues has been very difficult as I am not been able to reproduce the crashes on my own systems. The Script Debugger 4.5.7b1 build addresses some additional problems that I hope will further improve stability.

To help me determine if I’ve resolved the stability issues (or at least improved things), please allow Script Debugger to submit ALL crash reports. I know that this may slow you down a little, but it will help me as I work to finally resolve the stability problems.


  • A Script Debugger 4.5 registration number
  • Intel or PowerPC Macintosh
  • Mac OS X 10.6, 10.5, 10.4


no longer available


  • Quit Script Debugger if it is running
  • Mount the ScriptDebugger4.5.7 disk image
  • Copy the Script Debugger 4.5 application from the disk image to your Applications folder (or any other place on your disk)
  • Restart your Macintosh to ensure all caches are flushed

I recommend keeping your copy of Script Debugger 4.5.6 around in case you need to revert to that build. Note also that this BETA build expires on May 1, 2011.
