    unable to create runtime solution

    seevogel

      Summary

      unable to create runtime solution

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13

      Operating system version

      OSX 10.9.2

      Description of the issue

      if binding runtime I always get a dialog: "This file is locked or in use".

      behind that dialog the binding process had stopped at "Copying Solution Files… Internal Runtime Libraries info.plist"

      After the binding process I always get a unusable Runtime app.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      try to create runtime app.

      Expected result

      usable runtime

      Actual result

      unusable runtime

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      "This file is locked or in use"

      "Copying Solution Files… Internal Runtime Libraries info.plist"

      Configuration information

      I had the issue with FileMaker 13.2.

      today I deleted FileMaker 13 folder from the app-folder and re-installed fmpa 13 completely and updated it with fmpa 13.3 updater.

      Workaround

      no

               I forgot:

                

               I searched the info.plist in the contents folder of the Runtime.app application.

               I find some files of that name but none of them were not locked.

                

               I also have fmpa 11 and fmpa 12 installed.

                

                

               The Logfile.txt is very informative:  ;)

                 I had similar experiences with FM 12 and later which I always could avoid by quitting FM first and Restart FM before performing runtime binding. Looked like some wrong informations in the cache let FM believe that some of the RT-Ressources are still in use.

                   I found a solution after searching the web another time (searching and sorting are not so useful in this forum but I found the answer in this forum by using google).

                   I changed my OSX user to admin mode (restart) and after that I was able to bind the runtime!

                   That was no nice solution because I have to change the OSX user again to non-admin-mode and have to restart again…

                    

                   after that I had another problem:

                   I want my runtime database to have the extension "fmp12" but that did not work.

                   after accepting "fmpur" everything works.

                     You can't specify .fmp12 as that is the file extension for the full up licensed copies of FileMaker Pro and Advanced. You have to use a different extension so that the OS opens your runtime "crippled" copy of the FileMaker Pro application that comes with your solution folder instead of a licensed full up application that your user likely does not have. (If they had that, they don't need the runtime, just the database file.)
