Hi firebase ,
if I remember well someone has already succeeded on Windows 10 Pro, search on the community. As you know it's not supported on Windows not server, so I don't recommend for a production server. For testing purpose, I think it's Ok.
What is it you are calling the last step, is it the Deployment Assistant ? You may get clues in the Windows Logs.
Yes its the Deployment Assistant, sorry dod not had that word on my mind.
Win 10 works perfect with FM15, but untill now i could only manage to get this far and the to copy the whole folder from a Win8 Install into the Win10 installation. And then i did not get the Web section working.
Neither WebDirect, nor CWP ? Copying folders, hum not sure that would work .
Which parts of the Deployment is failing: 4- Type of 5 - Test ?
Copying folder works for the basic stuff, I used this for 3 month now, but i realised that i need Webdirect now and this does not work also updates dont work.
Its hanging after Step 4 before test (5).
Re-running the Deployment Assistant may help. To do this, go to the FMS Console, on the top right, second from the left there is a menu called Server, the first choice lets you change the deployment. You can't change the port numbers for Web and Secure Web connections though (I guess), that's done before calling the Deployment Assistant.
Be sure the standard Web Site from IIS does not interfere with FileMaker Web Site.
By deactivating WebPublishing I got trough the Development Assistant.
So its probably a problem with IIS?
Hum, I am not an expert about IIS unfortunately.
If you (from the Control Pannel) go to Enable or Disable Windows Functionalities, under IIS Internet Services did you check 'World Wide Web Services' and 'Web Administration Tools' ? If so under Administration Tools, you will find 'Internet Services Manager'.
NOTE: I run Windows 7 in French, so on your Windows 10, names could be differents.
I have FMS15 running on Windows 10 Pro and Webdirect is running. I did not do anything special for webdirect to run, just followed FMS install directions and it installed without issue.
Again this is running on Windows 10 Pro.
I have the same on Windows 7, but when I do test CWP from the Test page. I get an error (translated from French):
PHP connection to FMServer_Sample database failed.
Web Publishing engine denies connections ... (Error 7, insufficient memory).
Again I installed a fresh Win10 only installed updates and drivers.
Then I actived the IIS with clicking on this checkbox and enabled some more options I feelt they could help.
Then I isntalled ARR manually and tested if the standard page is loading, which did.
After this i dissablled the the standardpage since its using port 80 and 443.
FMS 15.03 installed without any further abnormal notes and after this the deployment page startet which hung on test again and repeats from start after a longer while.
I run the localhost page on port 80 again and it shoewd me the the webconfiguration from \\?\C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\HTTPServer\conf\web.config could not be loaded. I am guessin because of them rights problems?
So, what is going wrong?
I could fix the Folder right problem by choosing the currently aktive user (for testing) and it solved this problem, but its still hanging in the deployment loop.
From reding the manual i understand that the installer tried to choose some user roles which are probably only accessable on Win Server. So this installer is not made for Win10. Probably easy to fix this, but i dont have any time or knowledge to get behind it.
