the scripts and these people are doing a clean install. Just for
grins, to see what all the issues were, I tried it moments ago on an
already-working fairly vanilla WP 3.5e with updater install, got the
same error message reported in this forum, and here's what I had to do
to get the icon updater script to work for a Mac OS X installation
(your suggestion about add character/delete character, save/compile,
etc., did not work):
(1) download the "Akua Sweets 143" package, unstuff it, place the
"Akua Sweets 143" folder in the "System Folder" for OS 9 at the root
level of the Mac HD;
(2) (this step seems to be missed in the instructions) run the
"installer" inside the Akua Sweets 143 folder installed in step 1
(3) rebuild the OS 9 desktop (System Preferences, Classic pane, click
the Advanced button, rebuild desktop)
Now the updater was able to run without giving the error message.
Hope this helps.
