I have several customers that utilize our MarinaPro Marina Dockage Management solution. All are running Windows 10 Pro 64Bit and Filemaker Pro 11.0v2.
All the MarinaPro solutions are functioning well with exception to the one marina that is using an HP LaserJet Professional M1217nfw MFP printer. The printer has been named "HP LaserJet".
The problem is that scripted reports will not print after an updated/revised solution is installed on the computer. However, a test page can be printed from the Windows default printer.
Print scripts are utilized by more than one report and this sample is named - "Master Portrait Printer | Current Record | All | 1 |" and is formatted as:
#Used by: Print Float Plan Form
#Used by: Toggle Printer Mode
#Print: Current Record | Print Range All | Copies: 1
Print [Restore: HP LaserJet; No dialog]
Filemaker Help states, "If you do not specify an output destination before saving the script or 'if the specified printer cannot be found' when the script executes, the 'output from the script step is sent to the user’s default' printer."
It appears that the "specified" printer is not being found and the output from the script is "not" being sent to the user's default printer.
However, if I "re-specify print options" and "Save" the script it will start working again. And now I am unclear whether it is actually finding the FMP "specified" printer or the Windows "default" printer.
Any ideas why this occurs?
I have been using Filemaker since ver3 but only for my own use, at work and at home, but only for my needs. Currently I've created a couple apps that I would like to share with my coworkers when they are out in the field so I bought a little server and am trying to download filemaker server 16 onto it. I bought it specifically with windows 7 pro because I had read that was a good os for it but after trying to install and it not working, I see now I should have purchased windows server.
Can I get some help as to what I actually need. I would like to run my apps through web browser or fmp go and I would like to not spend a lot. I would appreciate any advice.
Thank you. Also, please note that although I'm not completely new to fmp or computers, I am not strong at anything beyond a personal use level, so if you would, please keep your assistance to vocabulary that will make sense to me.
I am trying to install Mirror Sync 4 on a FileMaker Server 16 running on macOS High Sierra (10.13.1).
In the middle of the process, I get this error message:
"Installation failed: Unable to install: Web server did not start after 30 seconds. Giving up."
What could be the reason?
IMPORTANT - I am currently installing Filemaker Server 16 on a desktop PC running Windows 7 Pro. I know that it is not ideal, but I havent been given clearance on using the Windows 12 server computer..
After the files have been installed for Filemaker 16 Server,
I am given a 1920 Error from Windows stating that I might not have the correct privileges to start the services.
This cause the installer to cancel and rollback.
I have updated bonjour, updated Java to the latest version, I have made sure that all the windows updates have been installed. I disables the DEP and I start using the setup.exe file found in the file folder of the Filemaker Setup folder.
If anyone has encounter this issue before and knows or has any suggestions on what course of actions to try next, I will be very appreciative on thier help.
I will also append to this if i find the solution.
Currently in the process of uninstalling bonjour, java and the C++ files, restarting the PC and reinstalling the server files again.
