I'm in the process of moving a bunch of old .fmp12 files to a new physical Mac with FMS 17 running. When I open any HOSTED db/file, the "Script Workspace" is grayed out and not available. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I did find the problem. The Mac OS system file INFO had the wrong permissions at that level. So, possibly, everyone who contributed was correct. These machines (host and clients) are all remote to me. An Apple Certified consultant is their IT fellow, and he initially set up the box. If I'd have set it up, I "MAY" have remembered to set those permissions recursively......... maybe not! :-/
Are you running Mojave? It's a known issue, and if memory serves, resetting the dialog box sizes and postions in Preferences fixes it.
Or your account doesn't provide access?
Or maybe files are read-only.
"Are you running Mojave? It's a known issue, and if memory serves, resetting the dialog box sizes and postions in Preferences fixes it."
No, Running High Sierra on both ends. I saw that tip as well, and it didn't work for me.
"Or your account doesn't provide access?"
I have not touched the access priv's yet, however, that did cross my mind, and all looks good.
"Or maybe files are read-only."
No, they're full access for me.
This could be beause a dialog modal to FMPA is displayed, for example Manage Database.
I checked the open windows, and no dialogs are open. Also, IIRC in 12-17, I've been able to have manage database and script both open in the past.
