Hi Jesse and Ocean West,

Have anyone found a resolution to this problem?  I have the exact same issue.

I may have a solution to the missing MirrorSyncUpdater but, the problem is not completely resolved.  I deleted Filemaker Go and downloaded a new version.  I then downloaded the file from the URL and performed a sync.  I then changed the version number in the server file and performed another sync on the iPad.  The sync worked, it reported a new version was available and then it proceeded to download the new file.  Everything appeared to be working but after a few tries, it failed.  After the URL transfer was complete ( blue progress bar all the way across) the file hung.  The progress bar disappeared and I had the option to "Continue" (on the right side) or, "Previous/next" (on the left side).  Clicking these buttons did nothing.  The little spinning wheel continued to go around but nothing was happening.  I left it for maybe 10 minutes.  It then opened the new file and asked me to put in my credentials.  This may be the reason why I deleted it before - it appeared to be doing nothing. I did this twice and the same thing happened each time.

 If one of my clients was doing this he would become rather frustrated and end up doing all sorts of things.  It may be an idea to include a message to say that the file should not be closed and to leave it alone to do its thing??  Warn the user that even though nothing "appears" to be happening, it is doing something.  Tell the client not to click any of the blue buttons and not to close down FileMakerGo.

In the previous version of FilemakerGo the MirrorSyncUpdater file was not showing on the device, nor the recent tab.  I may have deleted it several days back without realising it.

Jesse, you may need to include in your script a check to ensure MirrorSyncUpdater is installed on the iPad.  If not - install it.  I think it would be even safer to hide this file from the user so that he cannot inadvertently delete it.

Another point of note.  When the iPad had completed the download of the new version it opened the newly downloaded file.  On the Mac using Filemaker Pro advanced, it closed the file off and I had to manually open up the new version from the Finder.

This is a great feature and is better than the one I had developed.  Mine worked but, it did not delete the old file and replace it with the new.  I guess I could have done this if I had a bit more time up my sleeve.

Kaviti57, could you send me a private message with the download URL and developer access account so that I could see the problem happen?
