Filemaker Pro 11 runtime on Maverick (10.9.4)
I upgraded my Macbook Pro to 10.9.4.
I initially create a runtime in user->shared and it works fine. As a matter of course, I copy the runtime to dropbox to acquire back up services. The user->shared version is for testing purposes when updates are done and I usually delete it after the dropbox copy proves to be ok.
After the Maverick upgrade, the user->shared version works, but the drop box version does not. When I run the dropbox version I get menus, but they are not the custom menus I set up. Also, a panel with buttons should appear, but it does not. I have checked all permissions on files to make sure I had read/write access and all is good (after some r/w mods). Still, no dice.
Has anyone see this kind of behavior? Why problems on dropbox only? Do I need to re-compile the runtime on Maverick to fix this or are the runtimes produced by FM 11 Pro out of luck on this OS?
Sounds like the version that you opened from drop box is not the same copy of the file. Since DropBox simply copies files from one computer to the other via a "cloud" type server, It's hard to imagine how such a process would change the actual design or at least the behavior of the file.
