Hi everyone, I've just downloaded some scripts for iTunes to do a some basic stuff. I've ran the scripts & no probs but in the downloaded 'disc', there's a little installer icon. When i click it i get a msg telling me that it's a droplet etc, and the script will end up in username/library/itunes/script folder. But that folder doesn't exist.
Where can i store my new scripts? Can i just put them in username/library/scripts?
I mean I'll hardly need them very often. I'm new to all this applescript stuff,
would apreciate any help, thanks

The only scripts that must be in a specific place are folder action scripts, inside the Folder Action Scripts folder (not to be confused with the Folder Actions folder). All the others can go anywhere.

You could create a scripts folder inside the iTunes folder. My computer doesn't have a scripts folder there, either.

Thanks for the speedy reply. Stupid of me, but all I had to do was drop the scripts on the installer. It created the folder in itunes, and all was well. Hmm, mental note, read the readme files first!
Cheers again.

Have a read through this link Simbad54, it's to do with enabling the quick access to some scripts which are "ready to go" on your Mac:

There are some really handy scripts there just waiting to be discovered.
