ACP Web Services... Select text literally anywhere on your OS X desktop, click your 'Services' menu from your menu bar, select an ACP Web service - and you're there.

ACP Web Services is a group of over 250 search engine services working off 'Services' on your menu bar and includes a service manager app so you can edit them and add new services of your own. (The package includes a tutorial which shows how easy it is to do this.)

I LOVE this Services addition. I have been using it from its inception.It is excellent and it is easy to add various services to the menu using the export function in the Browser.This is GREAT freeware!

After downloading ACP Web Services 2.0.0.4 I found that every one of the AWS apps contained in the Browser, Catalogues, Manager and Service Folders crashes instantly upon launch attempt.

OS 10.5.8 on an Intel Mac.

OK, I initially just didn't grok the procedure. I now placed all AWS folders into my ~/Library/services Folder, restarted my Mac and all appears well.

It doesn't really matter where you put the Browser and Manager and Catalog folders.I put that little collection in my Application Folder, BUT you are correct the Services Folder should go to ~/library/Services.

Giving this a little thought I think it best if you moved Catalogs ,Browser and Manager somewhere else ,preferably to your Applications Folder as the only thing that should reasonably in the Services folder should be Services.Now you can put other Services from other Developers in there as well.But ACP really has it all covered for the most part!

Even from the Developer's AWS page only 2.0.0.2 seems to be available at this time (06:00 AM EDT 2009-10-12).

The services work w/o any problems - thank you very much.
But downloading via ftp gives me some errors on directory listing denied - and I'm not sure if the downloaded version 2.0 is the actual as announced here (all dates are from June 19, 2009).
Greetings...

ACP Web Services work fine on Panther, on 10.3.9, and on Tiger. As well as most other versions of OS X.

The reason you don't have a Services directory in your home area is that it is not created for you by default. But that doesn't prevent you from creating it yourself. And the system looks automatically for this directory every time your Services menu is regenerated or you reboot. It's a standard path for OS X, which is why it is put there.

As for the product 'not installing', this is quite the trick, as there is explicitly no 'install': you move the files to the locations indicated.

Haven't been able to get v 1.6 to work with Panther [running OS X 10.3.9 ]. The folder for ACP Services does not exist in any folder. The instructions given are very brief & there is no where to turn for any kind of support except here, which is why I am posting this. Would like to be able to see these services in action.
Also, how can I tell if my browser/version is 'cocoa' or not? Which browsers will it work with? [& what versions of those browsers? ]
Any response will be apreciated!!

Dear 'not working': thank you for your helpful detailed tip. ;P

Perhaps you could see if you've installed everything at the wrong location?

'~' means 'relative to your home directory'.

It's a Unix thing.

Cheers.

Can you be more specific? Can you write and detail it?
