[AG-TECH] Running shared apps / AGVCR_Launcher on OS X

	I've been having a go at testing AGVCR and AGVCR_Launcher on Mac OS X. 
I've noticed, to my dismay, that AGVCR_Launcher doesn't even run from 
the 2.4 Venue Client on OS X. I guess my legions (!) of OS X testers 
hadn't gotten that far yet ;)
	Anyway.. an odd problem, it says 'This program needs access to the 
screen. Please run with 'pythonw', not 'python', and only when you are 
logged in on the main display of your Mac'. I'm running the VenueClient 
from a terminal (used pythonw to launch) so I can see the debug output, 
but I also get nowhere when I try and run it by launching the AGTk .app, 
then the Venue Client and then the shared app. I can run the 'Shared 
Question Tool' but not 'AGVCR_Launcher'. Looking at the python files 
they are about identical on the top part and call the same 
'WXGUIApplication()' so I'm a bit confused. Any hints/ideas anyone?
	I'm not sure how people have been running AGVCR or the launcher, if 
indeed they have been able to do so. For the Mac users, I do now have a 
Mac 'bundle' of AGVCR working, at the moment it's just PowerPC but I 
plan to release it this week. I was finally able to free enough disk 
space on the root drive to install AG 2.4 so I thought I'd try making 
some changes in AGVCR_Launcher to run it from the bundle.
