The web services are a major factor as to why WebDirect ( or FMS ) is not supported on consumer-grade OS on Windows.
Not that I've never seen it work...but it is very often WebDirect does not work.
I understand this. FMS 13 works well on Windows 7 Pro.
Back to FMS 15, the log shows error 701, which is Java Web Publishing process has terminated abnormally. That cp
could be the version of Java is not compatible with FMS.
The actual version is Version 8 Update 73 build 1.8.0_73-b02. FileMaker Server is currently certified with Version Update 73.
My version of FMS is 22.214.171.124 and I am told it' current. Looking at Run Time Environment Parameters User Tab, I see that 1.8.0_31 is also enabled. Could that be causing issue ?
I ran FMS13 on Windows 7 also. And FMS14 ( with some issues with WebDirect ).
FMS15...never worked correctly on Windows 7 and 10. It may be a Java issue. But there are several core differences between FMS 13 and 15... Windows 7 just may not be able to process everything the same. I never spent too much time on figuring it out, primarily because it is an unsupported OS. So it's hard to find help in figuring it out.
I will have to test on Windows 7 and let you know. Currently I have only tested with Windows 10. I have not had any issue with Web direct.
Thanks a lot !
today I gave it another try, and to my great surprise, WebDirect worked ! Unfortunately I don't know what fix the issue. May be one of the patches in this week's patch Tuesday.
