Hi,

Anyone ever had any problem with AppleScript on 7.6.1 on a PowerPC.

On my 9500 I am not able to compile a script from the script editor. I always get the same error saying "The result of a numeric operation was too large". Even on the most simple script.

It looks like it was the RAM at the end. A bad RAM stick

A quick update to this post for anyone who would go through the same issue.

I have made some investigations, I tried 2 different 9500 motherboards, I tried many different memory sticks and it looks like the applescript engine on system 7 bugs when there is more than 512MB of RAM.

The problem is that when I made it bug with too much RAM, even after removing the excess RAM I had to re-install the system to make it work again.

There may be a fix or something I missed here because the 9500 and the 9600 officially supported more than 512MB of RAM and both shipped with system 7.

It seems I found a solution to that so I should be able to use the 1.5GB of RAM of my 9500 with 7.6.

I just replaced the AppleScript and AppleScript lib extensions from a Mac OS 8.1 install. It looks like it is working well so far. Smile
