Hi, I am using win2000 server with IIS5.0. I am trying to install the Web server Conector and I received this message:

"You must configure a Scripts virtual Directory before filemaker WSCS-IIS can be installed"

Can someone tell me what to do?

Filemaker needs a virtual scripts directory to install 1 of it's files.

Open up Control Panel -> Administration Tools -> Internet Information Services to tweak your website properties. Right click your website (usually called default website) From the flyout menu hit "New" then "Virtual Directory." The little wizard will guide you the rest of the way. Click "Next." Then for Alias, use "Scripts", now browse to your "inetpub/scripts" directory and use that as the target.

Now reinstall web connector and you should be all set.

      Hello all:
      Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I haven't found an answer to the problem so far. Here it is:
      I have a db created in FMP 5, and its shared as Entry Only in the Web Companion. In IE 5 and 4 on Mac and Win, the Entry Only layout works. On Netscape (Mac, Win I haven't tried yet) I get a short attempt to build the Entry Only layout, wich terminates prematurely, and then builds a List View layout, which allows full manipulation of the data. This is exactly what I don't want!! I need a 'data drop box' without further access to data for web users. The described problem occurs when connecting to FMPro Unlimited directly, or when connecting via FMWSC on OSXS.
      Any hints would be highly appreciated!
      Cheers, and look out for OSX! It's sleek and fast!

      I am unable to create ODBC DSN entry for a FM database. The FM drivers appear in the list; however, I am unable to create a System DSN or User DSN. I am able to create a File DSN; however, this setup is much slower than User DSN and even slower than System DSN.
      Has anyone else encountered this problem before? I get the following message, "The Setup routines for FileMaker Pro ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 126."
      Then the next error displays, "Could not load the setup or translator library."
      Can anyone help me out?

      I want to set up 2 website's with a single PC. I'm not sure what Operating System I need nor how to configure the OS to manage 2 unique IP's. Can I use Windows 95 or will I need windows NT server? Thanks for the help....

      We are currently evaluating FileMaker Pro Unlimited for use within our company, and have found very few resources available other than marketing info. I have not been able to find any tools or utilities that would allow printing of various defined layouts from within the browser. Is the browser's print command the only method of printing from within the browser?
      Assistance would be much apprecitated.

      Im just wondering if it is possible to keep text formatation on when listing out a field from filemaker on to the web.
      If I wanted to have sections with section headings that are in bold and the rest of the text not bolded, and also different size on the headings, can that be done, if so, what is the command for doing it?`
      listing out with ,break, html, raw etc didnt work.
