Mojave’s New Security and Privacy Protections Face Usability Challenges

(mpainesyd) #21

Update: I found a fix here:

I needed to grant access to my compiled app ( in the Accessibility and Full Disk Access options of Security and Privacy preference.

That worked for my Macbook but the iMac would not allow the change: “There was an error in Security & Privacy preferences”…

I managed to fix it by copying over a previous version of the app, complied under High Sierra. It seems that compiling Applescript under Mojave exacerbates the bug. I was able to grant Full Disk Access and Accessibility access to the older compiled app and now it works.
