      Summary

      Get (TemporaryPath) returning different data in FM14 than in 13

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      14

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.10

      Description of the issue

      Get (TemporaryPath) returning different data in FM14 than in 13.
      ex.
      FM13 = /Macintosh HD/private/var/folders/sw/fm96pj4x5mq_s6cgxpg6vspc0000gn/T/S10.9/
      FM14 = /Macintosh HD/var/folders/sw/fm96pj4x5mq_s6cgxpg6vspc0000gn/T/S10.9/

      Notice that "private" is omitted in FM14.
      Not sure if this is a bug, but something to be aware of. In my case it turned out to be the culprit in breaking a script that parsed the returned value of the function using position of "private".

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      In data viewer get result of Get (TemporaryPath) for both v13 and v14 and compare.

      Expected result

      return would be identical

      Actual result

      not

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      none

      Workaround

      In this case I used the function Get (SystemDrive) to omit the drive from the path.
