Product and version: FileMaker Pro Advanced 15.0.3


OS and version: Windows 10 Enterprise (Build 15063.413)


Hardware: Intel Core i5


Description: When exporting FileMaker-data to xml using xsl, and you specify the source for the xsl-file as URL, using https as protocol on windows is not supported. This works fine on mac.


How to replicate:
Write a xslt-script (file), test it locally to ensure there are no errors, and then place it on a webserver. Test the URL for the file to see that the server replies as expected, returning the xsl-file. (The server must of course be properly configured to handle https requests.)


In the dialog for Export Records, set type to XML, select the box for Use XSL style sheet and select HTTP request:. Enter the URL for the file using https:// as protocol.


You will receive an error telling you "SAXParseExeption: unsopported protocol in URL (Occured in an unknown entity, at line 0, column 0.)"


Retry the exact same export on a mac to see that it is working there whit out any errors.


Workaround: Change protocol to http
