Permissions issues with container fields and Lion


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Macos 10.7

Description of the issue

When having a container field export it's contents to the temporary directory in filemaker and immediately try to open that file it will show a permissions error and the file will not open.  This same script works just fine on macos 10.5 and 10.6.  The only change is Lion.  Other people still using the database using Windows and macos 10.6 still have no problems.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Insert a file or image into a container field, then export the contents of that field to the filemaker temporary directory with the script opening that file.

Expected result

The file should open

Actual result

Get a permissions error.

Configuration information

You do not have Permission to view this file


Seems to only happen on the first attempt to open the file.  After the first attempt additional attempts work fine.
