Hi,

We developed a standalone runtime solution in FM Developer 6. As requested by a few customers, we want to create an "add-on" solution, which uses scripts to process data in our main runtime solution.

Is it possible to access the "compiled" .USR file using another one?

Thanks in advance for your input,

Anne

You will need to rebuild the runtime solution with the new files added to the original set.

You must have master password and, preferebly, the original .fp5 files, however you can use your clients files if necessary.

no. It isn't way right.

Open "customer" .USR file with FILEMAKER PRO and full access password.

Save it as .fp5 .Now you have a FM file with data.

add-on new solution, then you must do a new standalone runtime solution. then send runtime to customer.

goodevening.

Hi,

Thanks for your input. If you are telling me I really need a full version of FM to access a runtime for e.g. an add-in that accesses the runtime's data for batch label printing only, then it doesn't meet my needs.

I want to build a small, "extra" runtime that access data from an existing one, and I don't want to be forced to "rebuild" the runtime and send it to the customers, who will then have to uninstall what they have already and install that new solution.

FM does not bind your File to the DB engine. So all you have to do is copy your new file in the your soulation that is running now and recomplie it again using the same extension and everything should work.
