Not authorized to send Apple Events to Finder!

    Hi Harald,

    Where are you trying to use this command? May I ask you to attach a screenshot? 

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Using it from the Finder Menu bar.

    Note that the Reveal App inside your bundle is not in the Automation tab. Initiating it does not trigger the permission dialog.

    Hi Harald, 

    Please follow the instruction and check if the issue still persists: 

    1. Make sure that Path Finder is located in the Applications folder

    2. Open your terminal and paste the following command to check if Path Finder has been slapped with the quarantined extended attribute:
      xattr /Applications/"Path Finder.app"

    3. If you see com.apple.quarantine returned as output from that last command, then go ahead and run this next command:
      xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/"Path Finder.app"

    You won't get any feedback or output from that command, but that's okay because you can just run the first command again to see for yourself if the com.apple.quarantine attribute shows up again. It shouldn't, and now Path Finder is freed from Apple quarantine jail. Restart your PathFinder now. 

    Looking forward to your reply. 

    Best Regards,

    It is not quarantined. Path Finder runs. This is not the issue,

    There are new AppleScript/Event restrictions in Mojave. The problem is the with the Reveal app in the bindle.

    It looks like some properties now required in Mojave are missing such as:
    <key>NSAppleEventsUsageDescription</key>
    <string>Used to open the current Finder Folder</string>
    <key>NSAppleScriptEnabled</key>
    <string>YES</string>

    It looks like this is an AppleScript Applet. Recompile with the Mojave version of the Script Editor.

    Looks like a run-only script, so I cannot fix it.

    Created another applet that works compiled with the Mojave Script Editor

    -- Simple Reveal Fix
    tell application "Finder"
    activate
    set this_folder to (the target of the front window) as alias
    -- close the front window
    end tell
    tell application "Path Finder"
    activate
    open this_folder
    end tell
