There never was a Windows limit that was lower than the FMS limit. Where did you get that?
The limit in FMS12 is still 125. Both Mac and Windows.
I think back in v 8 or 9 that Windows had a lower limit than the 125 on Mac OS. Maybe someone else can remember exactly when there was a difference. Anyway, I mostly wanted to confirm this was a limit from before FMS 12 that my client is on. I ask this mostly since I work on Mac servers and am less familiar with Windows servers.
Nope, the current file count of 125 dates back to 1999 and FileMaker Server 5. Check out my server training tutorials at www.vtc.com
