Has anyone worked up a script to batch process a group of 2014.5 files and export them as 2012?

EDIT: I did it myself, sort of...

I found the existing script to export as XML, and I changed it to Export as finale 2012. It worked, but, on the first test, it asked me to identify the source file, but it didn't ask me to identify the destination folder.

The second time I ran it, it didn't even ask for the source; it just ran, using the previous folders.

Aren't the folder choices something that it should ask me?

Wgen you compile the script, it should but if it runs successfully, it won't.

In a previous life, I wrote lots of remote scripts to control UNIX processes. Although it was supposed to make sense, I can't say that it always did. Sometimes, you'd run something to identify the hangup point and it would complete. "What? That worked? Really? Ok, try it again. Still works? Cool—moving on"

In my experience if there's something you don't understand, it's likely to come back and bite you.
