I got a FileMaker Server 15v3 installed on a Windows Server 2012 with no strange installations/settings.


I use FileMaker WebDirect and if I want the users do skip Launch Center I give them the url to the specific file. They then get to log in dialog and enter there information (username & password) to get in to the solution. If I instead take the users to Launch Center and have them click on the specific file they are to work with WebDirect behave differently


I have taken out Get( UserName ) and Get (CurrentPrivilegeSet) and put them into a ordinary Custom Dialog in my script that is run by trigger OnFirstWindowOpen.

If user instead click on the file on Launch center, same Dialog give me this

And of course, the second Dialog is showing me the correct information.


Why do it behave differently?

Where do [WebDirect-C74DA] come from and what is it?

Should it behave like this?
