Cannot run FM 18 upgade install

Recommended Posts

When I launch the exe for upgrading to FM 18.0.3, I get a window showing msiexec options. Installation will not start. I am running win 10 Pro, version 1909. Any help will be appreciated.


Found a way around the issue... Had to drill down to the msp file in the package, clicked on that and the install ran without issue...

      Hi all
      This the last thing I need to implement on our Server as per FileMaker's installation and configuration guide:
      Make the virtual memory swap file a static size so Windows doesn’t attempt to adjust it. Use the recommended file size amount
      Am I right in thinking that this is in the attached section?
      If so, on which drives should I be specifying the swap file size? And what would the initial and maximum size be?

      Thank you

      Hi, in the attached database, we collect a range of readings per date. I need to calculate the median for each element (eg temperature, pH etc) across a range of dates. There is one record per date.
      The user will change the range of dates depending on what time period they want to view. The data doesn't need to be summarised by anything.
      I am most of the way there, thanks to this great post: https://www.briandunning.com/cf/298. I have run the script in that link on a field doing a summary list. However, the list doesn't seem to sort as specified in the script, and the median value returned is not always accurate.
      The lab results layout has been temporarily set up so I can see the summary field for each element below the median calculation field, with the actual data in the body. This way I could see what the sort was etc. I've just put in 5 records to test this, and to test what happens when there are odd and even records. sign in is admin/admin.
      Grateful for any help!

      Thanks in advance for your thoughts and the time reading this. 
      I am currently running server 17, no issues, however, my SSL certificate just expired. Before I go through all the new motions and get a new certificate, you think I should switch to 18 now? Since the world is ending, my server is slower and its a good time to back it up and upgrade to 18. Are there anything noteworthy about switching to 18 at this point and will installing a certificate be any easier in 18? I thought installing a certificate on 17 was a pain in the you know what.
      Any thought appreciated.
      I am also running my server on a Mac. Been very happy, no issues to speak of.

      Hi, I'm trying to do a cURL PUT request using Insert from URL to Discord's API.
      I've successfully completed the PUT request using Postman, but I can't get it to work in Filemaker. 
      I've successfully completed GET and POST requests with Filemaker, so I know my Discord authorization is working.
      Here's the url I'm using (with IDs removed):
      "https://discordapp.com/api/channels/<channel_id>/messages/<message_id>/reactions/<:name:id>/@me" Here are my curl options (with authorization removed):
      --request PUT --header "Authorization: <token>" --header "User-Agent: <user>" --header "Content-Type: application/json"  
      I'm getting this error response:
      <!DOCTYPE html> <html lang=en> <meta charset=utf-8> <meta name=viewport content="initial-scale=1, minimum-scale=1, width=device-width"> <title>Error 411 (Length Required)!!1</title> <a href=//www.google.com/><span id=logo aria-label=Google></span></a> <p><b>411.</b> <ins>That’s an error.</ins> <p>POST requests require a <code>Content-length</code> header. <ins>That’s all we know.</ins> The last line of the response makes me wonder if Filemaker is submitting it as POST and not PUT?
      Any suggestions are appreciated!

      I have files loaded into filemaker server 18 and suddenly they all keep randomly opening and closing. Very strange.
      Anyone know of such an issue?
