  1. Thanks for your replies. I appreciate there is some work involved. Look forward to the updated version. Also, to note, Java have released this note from Apple that El Capitan will be the last OS that offers support for the legacy version: https://www.java.com/en/download/faq/java_6.xml
  2. @ryan360Works - doesn't installing a legacy plugin (6 when Java is now at v8) mean introducing unnecessary security holes? I just upgraded to El Capitan Beta and the Java run time 6 SE was deleted on upgrade and would need to be installed again. Aren't 360Works going to address this?
  3. This is incredibly useful, thanks for posting (even if it was a while ago!)
  4. TSGal has answered this question here: http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/eaa7e3dbf4 Basically, to get a system level script running, you simply need to add . before the username on windows. So simple when you know how. So the script now runs but doesn't copy to the servershare so I think I need to add a domain account to run the script by rather than a local user account. Or just leave it running divorce in Task Scheduler.
  5. As a work around (although it still doesn't solve the problem with FMServer not running locally authenticated server side scripts) you can get the above working by running the system level script from Windows task scheduler... (although it doesn't then work in tandem with FMS which is minor pain) However, for those needing to work with server/shares the change you will need to make is to PushD to change directory to the server/share first, otherwise you won't be able to make a the copy of the file as you can't use a UNC path in a scheduled script e.g.: @echo off :Variables SET serverPath=servershare SET inbox=C:Program FilesFileMakerFileMaker ServerDataDocumentsIMPACTUK_GRANTPAYMENTSinbox SET sent=C:Program FilesFileMakerFileMaker ServerDataDocumentsIMPACTUK_GRANTPAYMENTSsent if exist "%inbox%*.csv" ( PUSHD "%serverPath%" FOR /F "delims=|" %%I IN ('DIR "%inbox%*.csv" /B /O:D') DO COPY "%inbox%%%I" & MOVE "%inbox%%%I" "%sent%" POPD ) Exit Nope, I don't really understand the UNC bit either, but here's some references: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12513264/batch-runs-manually-but-not-in-scheduled-task http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Path_%28computing%29#UNC_in_Windows Essentially the PushD takes you to the server/share and sets it as your current working director so you can copy the file there, otherwise the CMD process doesn't understand the serverPath reference.
  6. Hi guys, I'm on a Windows 2012 Server running FMS13. I have written a simple .bat file which simply copies a .csv file from /data/documents/ to a server share. Running the .bat in CMD prompt or Powershell successfully copies the file. I've tried to set up a script schedule in FMS13. I can see the .bat file in the drop down menu in step 1. I have also added an admin user account to run the script by. The event log gives me this error: I don't think this is a very helpful nor a true description. 1) The file does exists and has already be found. 2) It is not invalid as it runs correctly from the cmd prompt The .bat file simply says this: :Variables SET PSFPath=sharenamefolder SET inbox=C:Program FilesFileMakerFileMaker ServerDataDocumentsinbox SET sent=C:Program FilesFileMakerFileMaker ServerDataDocumentssent @echo off FOR /F "delims=|" %%I IN ('DIR "%inbox%*.csv" /B /O:D') DO COPY "%inbox%%%I" "%PSFPath%" & MOVE "%inbox%%%I" "%sent%" & EXIT i.e. it copies the latest file from the 'inbox' to a server share, then moves it to the 'sent' folder. I was thinking it was a permissions issues but... (edit: see post below) -------------------------------- I've tried a few more things and think there's a problem with FMS13 using any account other than the default one... Here's why: Here's my new batch script and i apologise for it's complexity: echo test : ) And I've saved this as test.bat Again, it comes up and I can select it in the drop down when setting up a new system-level script. So, if I run this without ticking the 'use a User account rather than the default account', it runs OK. As does copying my .csv file from a local folder to another local folder - the problem is, I need to copy it to the server/share and as far as I understand, for this I need FMS to run with a local account on the server which has privileges to access the share. But if I run the above text.bat with a 'User Account' - and for this I've set up a brand new account in the administrator group called FMServer - then I get the utterly frustrating 'Aborted Unexpectedly' message: Again, given that this file: 1) Can be found 2) Is valid (as it runs without the user account selected) means that the above is a very poorly constructed error message. I have tried using both just username and computername/username as per the instructions for Windows in the server help. There also appears to be no 'Validate Account' option in the FMS13 admin panel as there was in previous versions. And FMS doesn't seem to be able to validate any account to run a system level script. Can anyone else test this on a different instance? I think this needs to be fixed before I can troubleshoot my script for problems which seems to otherwise run fine.
  7. Would be helpful to know if you're on Windows or a Mac... You can use PSLoggedOn on Windows or Who or Users on Unix/Mac via a system level script to return a list of users logged on. You could then pipe this output to a text file and import this in to a global text field, and parse it in Filemaker to get a value list of logged in users. However, I'm not sure how you'd do this on demand as system level scripts are run as scheduled scripts on the server which you can't call from FMPro.. but you might want to look here for a way round this if you need this functionality: http://fmforums.com/forum/topic/85738-call-upon-server-to-run-a-backup-from-pro/ As Steven said, what's the end goal here?
  8. Sorry if I'm missing something here... Our website PHP server has just been upgraded to 5.3.x We have used FMStudioPro to help us connect the website to an FM database for the last few years however we are now getting multiple messages similar to: Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in ../FileMaker.php on line 138 Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in ../FileMaker/Implementation/FileMakerImpl.php on line 98 Etc... I know that these are just warning messages which I can turn off in php.ini, however was wondering if there is a newer version of the Filemaker PHP API. The files I have seem to be from 2005-2006 Can't seem to find a download on Filemaker.com Thanks
  9. oh! That's great! I'd never used that script step before! Any ideas what you'd do on a windows machine?
  10. Can ScriptMaster Zip File (src ; destination) unzip a file as well? Thanks Chris
  11. John, just wanted to say thanks for your reply. I ended up capturing an image 50% bigger (in dimensions) than I wanted then just resizing the container down to the size I wanted and it looks fine. Thanks for your tip about saving out as a .png file. I guess I could feed it the Get (TemporaryPath) from a Filemaker function?
  12. Hi, is it possible to improve the jpg quality that ScriptMaster uses in the Screen Capture function? It's very pixelated for what I need. Thanks Chris
  13. Hi, you might want to check if that user has Sophos Anti-virus installed. Intercheck is a killer for Filemaker. You can exclude the whole Filemaker folder from Sophos and specifically the filemaker app and the plugins in the preferences.
  14. I've got this working now, it seemed to be just a cache issue. Closing Go down and the host, then restarting both seemed to fix the problem.
  15. Hi, I often set up a portal with a calc field in the portal row which returns e.g. a trash icon if the portal row exists and a blank (or plus icon) if the row is empty. This just adds to the user interface as I don't like the trash can icon sitting there in an empty portal row. I store the images in a global field with x number of repetitions and use a case statement to retrieve the right one i.e. in the portal row I have a calc field which returns a container with the following formula: Case ( IsEmpty(kpContactDataID); GetRepetition ( GLOBALS::GraphicsContainer ; 4 ) ; GetRepetition ( GLOBALS::GraphicsContainer ; 3 ) ) This works fine in Filemaker Pro, but the containers return empty in Go. Is this a Go limitation? Thanks Chris
