Scribe Plugin Crash on FMSV 17 (Windows Server)

Recommended Posts

Hello, there,
I'm trying to get the Scribe plugin running on my Filemaker Server 17.

But I always get the error message:
Error 474 Plugin could not be loaded: 360Works_Scribe.fmx64
Error 701 The FileMaker Script Engine process was terminated abnormally.

I tried Scribe 3.08 and Beta Scribe-3.08009 but both don't work.

The server runs on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
JRE 1.8.0_171 (32 & 64 bit) & JRE 1.8.0_171 (32 bit) is installed.
The permissions are enabled to full access for "Everyone".
Server restart, reassign permissions and restart services did not help.

Does anyone have any idea why? I can send other log files if needed.

Thank you and greetings

Hi Christian,

Scribe 3 will not utilize the Java that is installed on the system. Rather upon first initialization it will download a sandboxed JRE that only runs when the plugin is enabled. I suspect that the issue is that that JRE is not downloading completely. Please follow the instructions here to manually install the JRE and then restart the FMSE by opening CMD and typing the command fmsadmin restart fmse -y . If the plugin will still not initialize it may be that the latest version of Scribe is conflicting with the Scribbler that you have installed. Scribbler is all GUI based operations which are not server safe so there is really no reason to have it installed in FMS. I recommend removing it and seeing if that resolves the issue with Scribe. If you still having an issue after that, we will need to see the temp logs. Please follow the instruction in the section labeled Temp Logs in the link above.

Hi Christian,

Thank you for sending those logs. There is an error in them so I will talk to our framework developer about it and update this thread as soon as I have more information.

Hi Christian,

Can you please download and install this beta build of the plugin? If it does not resolve the issue, please send the temp logs again.

      Scribe 4 - FileMaker OCR Scanning Demo Video
      Today, we wanted to share a practical way to use the new FileMaker OCR and PDF integration features in Scribe 4. If you have a stack of paper with information you need to access from FileMaker, you can easily automate this process with Scribe.
      In this demo video, we will show how you can scan in a stack of paper and extract the text (using OCR) into FileMaker, and have it on individual (spliced) PDF pages.

      New Major Version Release:
      Scribe 4!
      We are excited to announce a new major version of a popular 360Works plug-in, introducing Scribe 4! 360Works Scribe is the ultimate document automation plug-in for FileMaker; it allows integration with Word, Excel, and PDF documents. In this release, we are taking it to the next level by adding in the ability to read your scanned documents, such as receipts, forms, or contract PDF files, with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) functionality. Additionally, we added features to allow you to merge PDFs and get meta-data from them, plus multiple fixes for existing functionality in Scribe.
      New OCR Functionality
      Scribe 4 ships with brand new OCR functionality to read your scanned documents and extract text to be added into FileMaker. For example, a law firm can scan in loads of paper legal contracts and have the text extracted and imported into the appropriate FileMaker records! Scribe leverages the technology of Amazon Textract which goes beyond simple OCR by not only extracting text but also identifying key information like the contents of fields in forms.

      Click here for a cool demo file showing how to use this new OCR functionality in Scribe!
      New PDF Merge Feature
      We added two new functions to merge and manipulate PDFs with Scribe. For example, if you have a couple of PDFs stored in container fields, the new function ScribePDFMerge allows the two PDFs to be merged together. The new ScribePDFSplice function allows a multi-page PDF to be split up into smaller PDFs. This is beneficial if you have containers with multi-page PDFs, and only need to utilize a specific part of the entire PDF file.
      Get PDF Meta-Data
      You can now get meta-data about a PDF, such as the name of the author and page count. The new ScribeGetPDFAttributes function will return various meta-data about a PDF. This can be helpful if you want to have FileMaker manage PDF files according to the author or number of pages specified in the meta-data.
      Multiple Improvements to Existing Functionality
      We also made several upgrades to the existing Scribe functionality. When using Excel with Scribe, the Excel cell reading and writing images to Excel cells has been greatly improved. We also made fixes for the ScribeDocSubstitute function for replacing a value.
      Try or Buy Scribe 4
      Scribe 4 is available now at the Scribe product page. Active maintenance subscribers for Scribe or the 360Works Portfolio Bundle can download new major version 4 at no additional cost. All purchases within the last 12 months are still under an active maintenance subscription. If the maintenance on Scribe has not been renewed within the last 12 months, you will need to purchase a new license to use Scribe 4.

      For new license purchases, we have several license types available based on number of users, client-side or server-side usage, and a solution bundle license for developers with a vertical market solution.

      A free, fully functional demo is available to test Scribe. While in demo mode, Scribe will run for 2 hours every time you launch FileMaker (or FileMaker Server, for server deployment).

      Full pricing, license type information, and the demo version can be accessed at the Scribe product page.

      Has catalina broken scribe?

    • By dmcs
      First off, I love 360Works plug-ins and Scribe. We've had a very successful deployment that has saved us lots of time thanks to this great utility. All I'm missing now is the ability to downsize the size of the font that goes into some of the PDF form fields because of extremely verbose answers that wind up getting cut off when the form is printed. I've tried downsizing the type in the database and in the calculation that sets the field. I'm thinking this may be a function of the PDF form template, but I don't have Adobe Acrobat Writer. I'm on a Mac. Let me know if there's a way to do this outside of altering the original form with Adobe Acrobat Writer. Thank you.
