File move fails in High Sierra

Recommended Posts

When I try to move a file by means of the standard OPTION-COMMAND \  and selecting a folder the operation fails with:

 

"Osascript: Can't Open Default Scripting Component"

 

This behaviour seems to be related with my upgrade to High Sierra, but I am not sure.

I have not installed or changed any scripts recently 

 

How can I resolve this ?

@Jaap Noordzij I've just verified on our 10.13 test machine and it works as expected.

 

Alfred uses AppleScript to pass file interactions off to finder, and an error like this suggests that AppleScript / OSAScript has simply stopped working on your Mac.

 

Have you tried restarting? This may get things working again.

 

Cheers,

Andrew
