  1. I'm running SuperContainer as a stand-alone application on a Windows Server 2008 machine. (When I try to run it as part of FileMaker Server, I end up with strange permissions errors that my network administrator can't solve...) This works quite well, but I have to manually start SC by double-clicking on the SuperContainerServer.jar file, which is annoying. My Server machine reboots each night, so I must do this daily. I tried using the MS Server "task scheduler" to start SuperContainer automatically each day. But the task scheduler, which essentially starts a command task (directing it t
  2. I recently upgraded my computer from Windows Vista to Windows 7. I must now re-deploy SuperContainer, which I had been using quite successfully. I downloaded the latest version of SuperContainer (2.77), moved the files to an unzipped file, and clicked on "SuperContainerServer.jar". I get the following error message: "Cannot run SuperContainer Server: java.lang.runtimeexception: logging directory is not writeable, please verify that the Files folder is in a folder SuperContainer can write to." I'm not quite sure what this means. Any thoughts?
  3. I updated from 2.73 to 2.74 and ran into a problem. I did not have Super Container configured to require a password, but when I switched to 2.74 and opened my database to view something being held by Super Container, a pop-up requested a password to access the Super Container file. I switched back to 2.73 and all was well. Any thoughts?
  4. I feel as though this should be a simple problem, but I can't figure it out. I would like to replicate the "New Request" button which is on the Status Toolbar in Find Mode as a button on my layout. (I'm creating a Find Mode layout for my users.) Eventually, I'll also want to recreate the "Delete Request" Status Toolbar button and create a button which creates a new OMIT Request, but let's start simple. Any help is welcome! I'm relatively new to FileMaker, though, so the simpler the better! Thanks!
  5. Thanks, but I have one other question: To which file should I be adding the lines? If I try adding the lines to the uriworkermap.properties file, I am unable to save the file since my computer doesn't know how to write a ".properties" file and it gets confused. (More accurately, it says, "Windows cannot create [path to file]uriworkermap.properties file. Make sure the file name and path are correct.") Thanks again for your help with this!
  6. Unfortunately, I'm still sort of a novice to playing with these files manually. Here are my next questions, as I follow the directions given: 1. I copied the SuperContainer folder (but not the entire directory downloaded from SC) into the FMS9/10 path for Windows indicated above. 2. I can see that a file called uriworkermap.properties is in my FileMaker Server directory. But what do I do with that file now? 3. What does it mean to "add the appropriate lines to mount the SuperContainer webapp"? Where do I go to type in the lines given for Windows? Thanks, and sorry for ho
  7. I'm having a couple issues installing SuperContainer with FileMaker Server 10 (running on Windows Server 2008). Any help is appreciated! First, the SC documentation says to "copy the entire SuperContainer download folder to your server, and double-click the Installer.jar file..." How/where do I copy the SuperContainer folder? There are a lot of folders within my FileMaker Server folders! (This is probably a very elementary question.) I am running XML instant web publishing (but no other kind) - is that sufficient? Currently, I copied the SC folders into the top-level FMS folder. I do
  8. I tried the "noapplet" style, but to no avail. Here's where it gets odd: Currently (with things not working on my host Mac), the web browser points to "http://name-of-computer.local:8020/SuperContainer/Files..." etc. This works for me to open on the guest PC, as I mentioned before, but doesn't work on the local Mac. However, if I change this to "http://localhost:8020/SuperContainer..." etc., it does work on the local Mac. Of course, then I can't open it on the PC. If I change it to "http://ipaddress:8020/..." it works on both computers. Unfortunately, I am trying quite hard to avoid usin
  9. I set up SuperContainer last week (standalone, running on a Mac using FileMaker Pro 10). I open the database (hosted on that Mac) with a PC computer, and SuperContainer is working fine on the PC (which has FM Pro Advanced 10). However, today I can't get SuperContainer to work properly on the (host) Mac, though it is still working on the (guest) PC. The Mac error, which comes up in the web view box, just says, "Timed out". I don't get this error on the PC. Any thoughts? I thought I'd solved my container issues when I found SC, and yet here's another snag...
  10. I'm new to this (not even sure if I'm posting in the right forum!), and I have a question about container fields. I'd like my container fields to store only a reference to a file (mostly .pdf archived documents). I can get this to happen, but then when I share the database (right now just using FileMaker; will update to Server soon!), users in an opposite-platform environment cannot open the file. All the .pdf files are stored in a networked location that all computers are able to access. I know that the problem is that the file path is different on Windows and Mac. But what is the script
  11. I am having issues with cross-platform container field use. I would like to store only a reference to files in container fields, and we have both Mac and Windows folks connected. Some people seem to have indicated that there is a script or something which you can put in the container field (?) and both Mac and Windows folks will be able to access the document in the container field. Does anybody have this script? I'm super-new to all this, so any pointers are welcomed!
