    File is not modifiable


      My small nonprofit organization has our FileMaker 14 program hosted by Triple8. So far they have done a credible job for us. Today I downloaded our program from their server and when I opened it to try some experimental modifications of the program I got the message, "This action can not be performed because file is not modifiable."


      I contacted Triple8 by their support chat line and told them of the problem and they specifically downloaded the program themselves and opened it. I gave them a username and password. Triple8 reported back:


      "I downloaded the file and made a small change to it. I closed it and opened it again. The change I made remained. I did not have any issues saving the file.......  WHatever is causing this does not appear to be related to the server or download from what I can tell."


      I have full admin privileges and yet the downloaded copy will not permit any changes. I tried downloading it several times and each time get the same result. My desktop runs Windows 10.


      Any suggestions? Any help with this would be appreciated!
