Description of the issue

starting a runtime brings up the error-msg 'file 'debug...' not available (or similar) and the runtime can't start up

Steps to reproduce the problem

create a runtime on osx. start that runtime.

no running runtime

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

see above

Configuration information

see above, tested it on two different computers, one with 10.7.4 and FMA11, the other with 10.6.8 and FMA10. same result

Workaround

go to the application folder, into the FileMaker Advanced folder, set the priviledges for the 'FMI runtime resources' (or similar) folder to ReadWrite for all users (and all containing files). Afterwards, runtimes can be created - and they will run

I'm sure that this was reported previously because I've read about that issue - but I wasn't able to find anything here
