  1. Windows Server 2012 R2 Filemaker Server 15 Filemaker Pro Advanced 15.02 We got a corrupt record in one of our solutions, so I decided to do a recover on that file. It turns out that you can't do that on a FM installation on a Windows server. You get the following dialogue: "This command cannot be used by this installation of Filemaker." Douh? So I had to download the file to my computer and make the recovery locally, and then upload it again. Tedious. Does anyone know why this strange limitation is set?

    SVG Icon Manager

    I don't get it; How do you import the icons to your own solution? Do I really need to edit them all one by one?
  3. Thanks for the example Ian, I will look into this soon. I agree about doing it on the server side, it feels better as well. That's why I'm struggling with it... 😝 Wim; I got some different errors. 3 and 113 if I remember correctly. Now I only get a "?" as a result from the BE command. However, doing it from the client side (on the same server) gives no such error. And the plugin IS installed.

    Server side scripts for exporting field Contents

    Thanks for your input Wim. I think I have to take my chances though because I'm going nuts soon... (see http://fmforums.com/topic/100497-cant-get-the-be_listfilesinfolder-to-work-with-server-scheduled-script/)
  5. "This is the first time I'm setting up a script to run on a server with the help of a schedule, so I will probably make a lot of strange mistakes, but how hard can it be? Hard, obviously. :|" I have a script that check for new files in a folder, process them, export some data and move the files to a new destination. It works flawless with the Filemaker Client. On the Server I can't get it to work! I'm using the BE_ListFilesInFolder step. The folder that I want to check is the following (the FMServer User have both read and write privileges on all mentioned folders): C:\FTP\FM\In\ This is outside the server Documents folder, so just to be sure I tried to change it to: C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Documents\In\ I get the same error on both. I have tried to use a field as the path as well as hardcoded as well as variables in different combinations: BE_ListFilesInFolder ( System::FMIn Folder ) BE_ListFilesInFolder ( "C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Documents\In" ) Set variable($folderpath) and then BE_ListFilesInFolder($folderpath) Same error. I have tried a zillion different ways. With the Client it works. From the server it does not. I GET CRAZY!!! What have I missed? ...or should I just skip the Filemaker Server Schedule and do this with a client instead? Tia, /Andreas [Windows 2012 r2, FM Server v15.0.1.137]

    Server side scripts for exporting field Contents

    Old thread, but related; Since Filemaker Server Side Scripts have some limitations I may have to use a client computer to do the automated stuff. Do you guys see any disadvantages by using a client installation on the server itself? It certainly have all the processing power it needs, and the client and server can run simultaneously, but is there any big disadvantages? (Filemaker Server 15 and Pro Advanced 15]

    Yosemite and FMS

    I am surprised how snappy and speedy Yosemite us! But - Filemaker is notably slower, especially in layout mode.
  8. Is it possible to make FM Go remember the login, so you don't have to enter it every time you want to login? The database is located on a Filemaker Server Advanced 12. I know this was possible with FM 11, but now I can't seem to locate the information. *frustration* Tia!
  9. I have the same problem. But in FM10...

    Change JPG Size + Resolution

    Length(TheField) delivers the size of the field, which means I have a workable solution now! :

    Change JPG Size + Resolution

    Thanks for that Fenton! However, I have a client that runs their solution entirely on Windows. Is there a plugin or other way to alter the picture size on FM Windows?

    FMServer Warning 661

    We are also having the same issue, and none of our "File Options.../Log in" are checked. Quite frusrtating. Any more ideas?

    Reset Admin Server Password?

    So, how do you do it on a Macintosh?
  15. IWP has a lot of limitations. One of them is that you can't make a new window. Is there a workaround for this?
