I include the script log to guide programmers in fixing this issue this year. Thank you.

Those are errors in scripts you have installed, not in Opus.

You should report them to whoever wrote the scripts.

Although from the look of the errors, the script code is completely invalid? Where did it come from?

I copied the data from the window at the bottom of directory opus. The data corresponds to one of the five logs available under the help tab.

I know where the log messages appear in Opus.

But where did the scripts you have installed come from?

The error messages in the logs are coming from these scripts:

  • PM Select by filter.vbs
  • PM Filter menu.vbs
  • AM Filter menu.vbs

If you type /scripts into the Opus location field (address bar), it will take you to the folder containing your installed scripts, and you should find the files there.

Those scripts don't come from Opus. You must have installed them. Where did they come from? What's inside them? Can you zip & attach them for us to see?

If we can see the scripts, we might be able to help explain why they aren't working. From the look of the log you pasted, it appears the scripts contain invalid code.

I downloaded a dark green appearance program from this area. I am guessing that the scripts belong to that effort. Nothing that I routinely do with Opus is affected as best I can tell. I will search via your suggestion then I will switch it off. Give me a couple of days here. I will also try to back track to the source and report the information to you, leo. Perhaps you can help the writer to clean up his actions if I can identify the sourse.

Thank you.

I will return.

I can't find a dark green theme that includes scripts, but if you can remember what it was and link the thread, I'll have a look and do something to prevent problems for anyone else.

If you could zip and attach the scripts to a reply here, that is often enough to work out where they came from, as scripts usually have details of their authors and forum threads inside them.

If you aren't using the scripts for anything, you can simply delete them from the /scripts folder.
