Interrupt startup script??

Is there any way to stop a startup script that has "Allow User Abort" turn OFF? (I know...why did I turn that off during development?!!) I've gotten myself into a loop that won't let me get into scriptmaker and change my mistake!! I have a backup file but I spent several hours making some serious changes and don't want to start from scratch again.

I found the solution in a post from December in Scriptmaker! Looks like I wasn't the only one that has done this. However, let me add something: I created a new db but had to give it the SAME PASSWORD that is normally used for the module I couldn't get into. THEN I created a relationship between the two files and VOILA! scriptmaker was active again. I turned the startup script off and will keep the "Allow User Abort" out of my scripts until I know they work. Thanks for the tip, though. I was about to panic.

No big deal, but it's proved to be a good habit:

I start all relevant scripts with a short conditional: if current modifier key isn't 8 allow user abort off. And I always hold down the "alt" key when launching scripts.

The advantage is you can leave it in the final version. The client won't know.
