Hey,

what happens if I create a solution in FM16 and use the "Card Window" feature and someone else who still has FM15 wants to work with my solution? Will this work or is it not even possible to run the FM16 solution?

Thanks in advance,

Mike

It will run but it will throw an error 3 (not supported) when your script comes to the line where you show a new Card window.  You can trap for the error and branch around it and do something else if your user does not have 16.

You can also specify 16 as the minimum version required to open the file, that's a setting in File Options.

      Trying to connect to an ODBC external data source in Filemaker Pro 16 Advanced
      We have a windows 10 desktop with user DSN's and System DSN's specified, 

      However the Select ODBC Data Source shows no entries?

      I have seen older posts saying that a System DSN has to be specified, but we did this and still nothing showing, is this a bug or am I missing a step.

      Encryption plug-in adds new script steps and online help for FileMaker Pro 16.
       
      Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands, August 15, 2017–Troi today announced the immediate availability of Troi Encryptor Plug-in 4.0 for FileMaker Pro 16.
       
       
      What is Troi Encryptor Plug-in?
       
      Troi Encryptor Plug-in is a very powerful tool for securing your FileMaker data, exporting or emailing your data without risk and importing safely back into FileMaker. All from within FileMaker you can:
              
      - encrypt text or container fields, using the powerful 256-bit AES encryption scheme, so that your sensitive data is secure
      - export encrypted data that can be sent safely across internet, for example via email. No risk that someone will read or change the data while in transit
      - use the decryption functions to restore the original information after you have imported the received email or export file back into FileMaker, with the assurance that nobody will have tampered with it
      - exchange AES-encrypted data with other systems (like for example PHP-mcrypt)
      - verify data integrity and sources with SHA-1 message digests
      - encode text in Base64
      - make conversions to and from binary
      - compress databases with large text fields
      - save and retrieve passwords to and from the keychain of the operating system
       
      What is new in version 4.0?

You can select these script steps in the script steps pane in Script Workspace, or you can begin typing the script step name, then choose the script step from the list that appears. The script steps expand the possible actions you can perform with FileMaker Pro. Only steps that perform an action have been added as a script step. Functions that just manipulate data and have no side effect (like for example Encr_EncryptRijndaelAES) are only available as an external function.
      The following three script steps are added:
         - Save Password to Keychain
         - Get Password from Keychain
         - Delete Password from Keychain

      Hey,
      I have a question about hosting my filemaker database. If I buy a license for 5 people form here: https://store.filemaker.com/filemaker-cloud , will I also need to purchase 5 normal FileMaker 16 Pro Client licenses so people can actually connect to the database? I don't quite understand how this works yet, maybe someone can help me out. Do I get the client licenses with the purchase of a server license? I need 5 people to be able to access it. Thanks in advance,
      Mike
