Server 12 cannot display container files
Operating system version
Windows 7 Enterprise
Description of the issue
First, this solution works as a stand-alone file on my desktop. Yet, when I upload it to the server it does not. I have a container field that holds a PDF. I have a layout that has the container field on it. When I open the layout FileMaker churns for 30+ seconds then comes back with a message in the container field "This program cannot display the webpage."
I know the PDF is there because I can "export field contents" to a file on my desktop and view it. This isn't a work-around because the solution is server hosted and PC environment variables (%username% or %userprofile%) don't seem to work. Therefore, I can't create a temporary file on the user's computer to view the file...
Steps to reproduce the problem
Happens all the time. The container field does not display the PDF - just an error message.
Display the PDF in the container field.
