I am a consultant who does a fair amount of FM installs. I have a database that I have on my server that I keet plugins. With 12 working better with container fields, I figured I would try to store my install files there too instead of on the AFP share volume over the internet. The container field is an externally stored field securely managed by FileMaker server. I uploaded the Windows applications just fine, but when I tried to upload the full FMP12 DMG file, it crashed saying FileMaker was out of memory. Is there is limit to container sizes or is it something about uploading a DMG to a container field that is causing the problem? Thanks for any suggestions.
