Because of the total frustration I had with FileMaker Server 14 not operating as expected with container field, I decided to do the ole remove and reinstall the software thing! This is what happened and may be a guide to future issues and something for the TS folks to look through!
1- Stopped FileMaker Server 14
2- Stopped FileMaker Services
3- Went to Control Panels and deleted FileMaker Server 14; ARR 3.0 was in the list of installed apps
4- Tried to reinstall FMS14 ... but it failed because it said "The internet connection was disrupted and ARR could not be downloaded" ... so strange!
5- Next, uninstalled ARR
6- Downloaded new ARR installer from Windows website (installer name was requestRouter_x64.msi) and installed w/o issue
7- FMS14 finally installed properly and became operational
NOW FINALLY the interactive container fields work on PC and Mac ...geez what an ordeal!
Some process was interrupted or altered by recent Windows updates, the question arises which one?
BUT BUT BUT I am still unable to open the admin-console from a Windows 7 PC using Chrome. On the Mac using Safari it will only run the console if I do a certificate exception. Before this reinstall it would even do that!
Hopefully these steps can help others in my same situation and guide FileMaker TS.
