  1. Yes. It even opens fine on other computers using windows 7 and XP. That's what makes me believe it has something to do with the specific computers and not Filemaker.
  2. FM12 - Windows XP/7. I have a script that exports a container field (that has a pdf) to the temporary folder and have it marked to "Automatically open file". The file has been created in the temporary folder but it doesn't open. Is that a problem that can be solved within Filemaker, or is that something that has to be defined on the computer (selecting which program opens which filetypes)? In case of the later, any suggestions to workaround it within Filemaker? Thanks.
  3. Get ( TemporaryPath ) & $randomName & $ext ( "File extension" which I get from the file ). And like I said, the runtime is creating the file without any issues, I can open the file directly from the Temp path (on the machine with the problem).
  4. Hi, I have a runtime with a script that exports the contents of a container to the temporary path and automatically opens the file. Tesing in my Windows 7 computer works fine. Testing on a second machine with Windows Vista works weird: If the container has a Word (.doc) file, it creates the temp file and opens fine (with Microsoft Word). If the container has a .pdf, it creates the temp file but doesn't automatically open it. If I go to the temp path it shows the file and I can open it directly (double clicking), it opens up with Reader. Does anyone know if the problem is related to
  5. Resolved! The problem was that my ISP sets some "protection" for all their clients by default. I went to my ISP control panel and disabled that and now IWP works perfect!
  6. FMPA 12 (not Server). I enabled IWP and it worked fine on our internal network. Went ahead and did port forwarding and we couldn't establish a connection from the outside, even changed ports to no avail. Then I decided to try connecting the computer that was sharing files via IWP directly to our modem, so that there was no routers and no port forwarding involved (the ip showing in the Mac network settings was the same we got from online pages that show your ip) and we still couldn't connect. Any ideas?
  7. Encoding solved (partially). Saved the text with encode Base64 and then just used decodeBase64toText. I say partially because that only works if I create the filePath as a Base64 text. Would still like to know how to specify a character encoding when using ReadFileContents(filePath) when "filePath" is not generated with Base64 encoding.
  8. Solved. Substituting forward slashes to backslashes. Something else came up. Is there a way to select the encoding in which to read the filePath for ReadFileContents(filePath)?
  9. Working on Windows 7, FMP 12, I have FM and ScriptMaster both on disk C:, I have a filemaker file on disk D: When I give Read File Contents a path to a text (.txt) file on the Desktop ( C:) or any other path on disk C: it works fine, however, if I use a path on D:, even relative to the filemaker file (again on D:) I get the following error: java.io.FileNotFoundException: file:myFile.txt (The system cannot find the file specified). Also got the error with file:myFolder/myFile.txt (relative to the filemaker file) and with "file:/D:/myFolder/myFile.txt" Any help would be really appre
  10. jbante: Yes, it would definitely be at the file level. mr_vodka: some of the fields that DO change need indexing, hence why I brought this up.
  11. I'm building a solution which will hold millions of records on about 3 or four tables. 2 of those tables will have fields that hold "static" data that should never change once its created. Then there will be a number of fields on those 2 tables which should be constantly changing (classification, performance and quality checks for "static" data). Would it make sense, specially from a backup point of view, to separate those fields into one to one tables?
  12. I know this might be a bit old, but I would like to know if it has been explained somewhere what "the same machine" means? Specially regarding PCs running Windows.
