  1. It sounds like someone has tried to reset the Admin Console password. When someone tries to do this, they are required to go through deployment again. The cause is that the deployment configuration files have been deleted. What the culprit likely did: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6989
  2. I doubt that either of these requests are possible, simply because the file structure is so complicated. I don't believe FileMaker has ever incorporated a way to directly import from older formats. You could make FileMaker 11 an ODBC source for FileMaker Pro 12, but that is likely more work than it looks like you'd want to do. Also, runtime solutions are considered "finished" applications. They aren't really meant to be converted to a new version because they are already standalone.
  3. Interesting situation. I hope it works out for you! Looking forward to any further update you have on the topic.
  4. Sounds like you're looking for an ODBC connection. What ODBC is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ODBC Microsoft Excel for Mac supports ODBC: http://mac2.microsof...0a-422f90ebf679 FileMaker supports ODBC, and just so happens to also use the Actual Technologies driver: http://www.filemaker...ogies/odbc.html You could also just export from FileMaker Pro and import into excel with the FileMaker database open and going to File > Export!
  5. Called FM, the word I got from the rep was that if you are wanting to distribute a runtime which utilizes a third party plugin, refer to that plugin developer to find out their policy on the topic. Makes sense.
  6. Yup. Look into revert record. That's the simplest way I can think of doing it.
  7. Only that it is not guaranteed to work. If you're looking to use FileMaker Pro with terminal services/citrix, it will work. With other software your mileage may vary. Also note that you will need a Volume License for the amount of thin clients you plan on having, as a single retail copy will not allow multiple instances to be opened. Terminal Services: http://help.filemake...etail/a_id/5442 Citrix: http://help.filemake...etail/a_id/6831 ______ And out of my own curiosity, why would you use NComputing over terminal services or citrix? They would have too offer some sort of benefit
  8. You may not distribute the FileMaker ODBC/JDBC sharing component that enables FileMaker to be a data source. This means you can not distribute FileMaker, Inc.'s driver. The driver enables FileMaker to be a data source. If you are simply doing an export and having SQL import that, then you're fine.
  9. http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/7365/~/messages-that-appear-in-recover.log It seems to be in this group of recovery messages according to this KB: "Resetting invalid plug-in arguments" "Reset field formatting" "Reset table view" "Resetting invalid data type, setting data type to text" "Resetting invalid maximum repetitions" "Resetting invalid field key" "Resetting invalid key" "Resetting invalid submenu key" "Resetting invalid table key" "Resetting invalid custom function call" If it's clustered within this general category of messa
  10. Sounds like you have way too much time on your hands. If this particular function works better in 11, then why not just use 11?
  11. Let's try to break the EULA down to simple matters. You can sell run-time solutions made in FileMaker Pro so long as you did NOT purchase the education/non-profit license. As long as you own the retail version of the software, sell anything you want. The EULA may point out some specific scenarios, but in general (and honestly) don't worry about it. The official statement: By the way, I despise EULAs :)
  12. I'm assuming you mean the fact that the "user name" field auto-populates with the account name of the workstation. I have yet to find a way to change this fact for every application. Although, with FileMaker Pro, if you go to "File > File Options" when you have your database file open, you can set it to log in to whatever account you like by default. Otherwise, look into external authentication: http://help.filemaker.com/ci/fattach/get/9203/ But that's a whole bag of worms you probably don't want to get into.
