Possible to luanch FM11 runtime & SQL Server 2008 in one windows server 2008 machine?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

A client of mine has an Windows 2008 Server which runs an SQL Server.

Because he doesn't have another machine and (Due To some reason, my client do not wish to mess with current SQL database structure),

so I will like to ins tall FM 11 runtime onto the same machine,

 

The runtime solution is to schedule login to SQL server to perform importing / filtering  and exporting data report.

 

My question is :...

Has someone ever done this and can it be done?

Possible for FM to login onto same machine to access SQL DB ?

Thanks!

Can they physically be installed on the same machine?  Pretty sure they can.  Is it a good idea: heck no.  An FMP runtime is a user-class piece of software and requires someone to be physically logged into the OS of the machine before it can be run.  That is not what you want on a server OS for the obvious security reasons.   So at the very least make sure the client understands that and explicitly agrees to this knowing the risks.

This I don't fully understand.  FM never logs into a machine itself.

Are you using ESS?  How do you want to access the SQL data?

Sorry, I mean FM runtime login to SQL DB  onto the same machine.

 

I just recall the idea of FM runtime is to take network access away and be single-user, no open remote function available.

So,the answer to my question is = "Not Possible "

 

Thanks for reply Wim.

      Basic Question:
      I am attempting to import 60 records from a CSV file. There are 4 fields per record: First Name, Last Name, Email and Source. 
      When I choose Import Records... > File... from the File menu, everything looks good, 4 data points point to the correct field names: arrow icon "Import this field" but the rest are the double dots icon, "Don't import this field," and when I click on the Import button only the first record is imported.
      I don't use Filemaker frequently enough to remember everything but when I need it, I really need it. I do not remember having to go thru and changing every icon in the Import dialog to import this field, I thought that was automatic.
      I there something missing in the CSV file? I can reprocess that if required. Having to indicate to import for every record will be tedious.
      Thanks in advance for any help.

      I just upgraded my Mac OS to Mojave (10.14.4).  I am running FMP Advanced 11.0v4, and my databases are in FP7 format (due to a legacy system at work.)  I now have a repeatable "glitch" where if I perform a find in a database and there are no records that come up as results (i.e., no records match the find), regardless which choice I make next (Cancel or Modify Find), the app quits and I keep getting the window to send the issue to Apple. I can immediately re-open the database, though usually the last 2-3 changes I made weren't saved.  Other than the obvious option of upgrading the app, does anyone know of a workaround for this? Thanks in advanc.

      Filemaker Pro 11 is running on two Windows 10 computers connected as Host and Client over a network.
      The script to import data from an Excel .csv file utilizes the following script step options:
          1. Un-Checked - Specify data source - File
          2. Check - Specify import order, Import Action
              a. Select - Update existing records in found set
              b. Check - Don't import first record (contains field names)
          3. Check - Perform without dialog
      When the Import script is run from the Host computer, and the desired .csv file is manually selected, the Excel first row field names are not imported and the second row with the data is imported as expected. (See Host Import Mapping)
      When the same script is run from the Client computer, the Excel first row field names are imported and not the second row data.  To get the proper result, I have to leave the check box for "Perform without dialog" unchecked and then manually, from the "Import Action" group, check the box for "Don't import first record (contains field names)" to get the proper data imported. (See Client Import Mapping, check box is no longer checked)
      Is this caused by a defect in FMP 11?  I can't figure out why this is happening.

      After my Windows 10 based Filemaker Pro 11 MarinaPro Solution is launched (Path = C:/MarinaPro/Marina.fp7), I need to create a variable ($$source = filewin:/C:/MarinaPro/ResScheduler/) to a revised default "Open File" path.  Because I need to select from several reservation request attachment Excel .csv files, placed in the ResScheduler directory by an Outlook 2010 Macro, my "Import Records" script is set with an "unspecified" data source.
      When my script is activated with Error Capture "Off", I get the obligatory Filemaker Pro Error message, "The file <unknown> could not be found..." and the "Open File window is still set to "Look in: "MarinaPro" (Default).  And, of course with Error Capture "On" there is no Open File window presented.
      I have to manually select and import the first Excel.csv file before the default directory becomes "ResScheduler".
      I want my default "Open File" "Look in:" directory changed from "MarinaPro" to "ResScheduler" before I open the first Excel.csv file.
      Is there a way, nothing I have tried is working.

      I've updated my computer from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro.  My FileMaker Pro Advanced 11 does not launch.  I get the message "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect."  What's the solution for this issue?
      Update:  I clicked on an fp7 file, and then Windows asked me to insert the FileMaker CD, which I did.  Some files were quickly copied over, and everything works fine now!
