    WebDirect Container Files Not Downloading


      Windows 7 x64 as Server

      Windows Server 14.04

      Tested Chrome and Safari - OSX

      Tested Chrome - Windows


      Container field appears to download, a file is loaded into download directory but it's empty.


      Is their still the issue with .NET?

          Thank you for your post.


          First, FileMaker Server 14 is no longer supported under Windows 7.  For complete set of information, see:

          FileMaker Server 14 Technical Specifications | FileMaker


          The .NET issue was resolved with FileMaker Server 14.0.4, so it is no longer an issue.


          Is FileMaker Server 14.0.4 using SSL?  If so, what certificate is being used?


          Is this a single-machine configuration?


          Is the Container field set for local or remote storage?


          What type of file is contained in the Container field?


          Do you have any plug-ins installed?  If so, temporarily disable them and try again.


          I'm assuming the empty files only occur under Mac OS X, as Mac OS X creates an empty file before downloading the file.  Under Windows, no file will download.  Can you confirm?
