    Plugin conflict with FM12 runtime

      Summary

      Plugin conflict with FM12 runtime

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      FMPA runtime creation

      Operating system version

      MAC OSX 10.6 and 10.7

      Description of the issue

      When creating runtime solution with FMPA 12v1 that uses plugins, it seems that plugin calls could conflict with thoose already in /Library/Application Support/FileMaker/Extensions/

      Confirmed with a plugin call to Troi Dialog in the runtime solution.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create a runtime solution with FMPA.
      Copy plugins to the runtime solution folders extension folder.
      Open the runtime and make a plugin call to a plugin, which also reside in /Library/Application Support/FileMaker/Extensions/

      Expected result

      Works without any problems

      Actual result

      Runtime solution crashes

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      OS X Crash report

      Configuration information

      This issue has been there in previous versions ( I belive I reported it in FM10v1 )
      It got solved in a v2 release of the product.
      Seems like the runtime engine include links to /Library/Application Support/FileMaker/Extensions/
      and also looks for plugins here. This can give a plugin conflict as it seems that the runtime engine loads both plugins.

      Workaround

      Delete any plugins on the computer.

      You should remove links in the runtime engine to /Library/Application Support/FileMaker/Extensions/
      as any plugins that is needed by the runtime solution should be copied and distributed with the runtime.
