Illustrator CS5 + Yosemite OS X 10.8 + Scriptographer

I was wondering if Illustrator CS5 running on OS X 10.8.+ (Yosemite) supports Scriptographer and if anyone has any success or issues while doing so? If yes then does it require a certain version of Java or anything else, issues, problems, advice, etc..

Please Advise.

Hi LL,

I'm using illustrator CS5 on 10.10, MB Pro Retina 2012. Not sure which Java version is installed; if I type java -version in terminal it reads
java version "1.6.0_65"

Illustrator CS5 is spotty on 10.10. It crashes fairly often, but if you save your work often enough it is usable. I upgraded to CC because of retina and the illustrator crashes; hence I only use CS5 if I need scriptographer! I only use one or two of the sample scripts, I don't do any developing myself.

Good luck.

Hi Facets,

Thanks so much for your feedback, sadly however it sounds less promising than Peters response, constant crashes is not what I am looking for. ;-)

Thanks so much for responding! I'm still hoping to hear more from Peter (or others) as well.

Hi LL,

sorry, i was not around for a while.

Answering your question:
You could say I had a clean install of Yosemite, as I have just bought a brand new MBP Retina 15" and it came with that preinstalled. I am not sure if Java 8 was also preinstalled, I have probably installed it, or updated from earlier version... I am really not sure about that.
I haven't used ScriptBay before, I'll check it out, but yet I have no eperience with that.

Thanks Peter, any further feedback from your usage?

Or any one else whom wishes to share their experience(s) as well.
