I haver created a FileMaker 16 pro advanced database and now need to distribute it. I have successfully created the runtime solution and all is well on my iMac. I have tried to send this to my friend (who doesn't have FileMaker) and when he tries to open the .app file, he gets an error message :-
"The Primary File cannot be found and is required for this application".
The structure of the files I have sent him look like this :-
He can then goto the folder and click the .fmpur file and it opens sucessfully. This has to be completed every time.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Good morning everyone I created a database runtime solution with FileMaker Pro 15 advanced. The program must export the contents of a form in PDF format. In a solution that runs under FileMaker I could use the command "Save as PDF" but this command does not work in a runtime solution. Could someone tell me how I could make this function? thank you so much.
I have more than 10k executable files, each EXE export data to a single table, inside of an unique MySQL.
I created a FM database to manage all data (ODBC), but I didn’t solve how to trigger a script from an external EXE, without looping for new data each minute.
#01: There is way to trigger a script in an open database, without looping ?
#02: Runtime solutions can be used with parameters?
My best idea, at this time, is to create a runtime solution and a relationship, and call it from the EXE. I do think is a "stupid idea" and there must be clever solutions out there.
Thanks for all
INFO: I am using windows 10 | FM Pro 15
I am creating a run-time from two linked solution files but cannot get a working solution which references the linked file correctly. When I create the run-time if I attempt to add the linked file to the Solution Files list I get an error message that the file is either open or already linked to the primary solution file.
Of course if I leave it out and create the runtime anyway, when I open the generated run-time I get an error that the linked file cannot be found.
How do I get around this circular issue and why on earth won't FM let me include linked files in the Solutions list when generating the runtime?
Turning to the forum for assistance on this as neither the built-in documentation and external sources seem to provide a working solution to this problem.
Can anyone point me to a clear process for re-linking an external file source (data file) where the solution has previously been saved with the external data source reference removed?
I am making a cut-down copy of a production database from copies of a two-file linked solution. Despite repeated attempts to specify the files as linked to each other under Manage> External Data Sources the external data source is not found.
Advice I Googled suggested going into Manage>Database>Tables and looking for italicised tables with "Data Source Missing" messages and that they could be re-linked from there. This is not the case, the interface file does not list external tables in the tables tab (and doesn't on the original working solution either). The Relationship Graph does show tables from the linked solution and has marked them as "Data Source Missing".
Surely there is a straightforward way to re-link a file with foreign TO references with the external file that defines them? I've tried re-linking to the file multiple times under Manage > External Data Sources but it has no effect.
Thanks in advance for any help.
