Is it ok to develop a seperation model with the ui opened in fmprom12 and the data files opened in server both running on the same pc. Filemaker docs say its not designed for this but it seems to work for me. Just get a share warning dialog when opening ui file in fmpro 12. When cleared , then I run both.
This is fine. Just be sure to open any files being hosted by Server using Open Remote; don't try to open them directly from the directory they're being hosted from. Oh, and make sure your external data source in the UI file points to the server, not to the local file.
