Can not export to Desktop in Citrix

Question asked by Johan Hedman on Oct 4, 2017


Citrix XenDesktop 7.6

Windows Server 2012 R2



FileMaker Pro 16v2


I got a solution where they in FMP15v3 could export a Excel file directly to there Desktop, but with FMP16v2 they get a error




Basically what the steps for the scripts are:


Set Varialbe ( $File ; "file:" & Get(DesktopPath) & "NameOfTheFile.xlsx"

Export Records ( With Dialog (Off) , $File ; Automatically Open )



The error basically says that it can not find the file located on the desktop in first sentence and second sentence it is asking if the file have been moved, changed name or been deleted.


In same environment I have a FMS16v2 installed on a WinServer2012 where I have full access. When I run same script to create a Excel file the files directly gets exported to my Desktop and opens up in Excel. On that machine I use FMPA16v2. If it did not work in FMP15v3 I would say that it had something to do with my script, but now since it is working with FMPA16v2 on the server I can not understand why it should not work on the users Citrix Desktop.
