FileMaker Launcher Files

Question asked by DougRawson on Feb 27, 2014

Has the * wildcard function been removed from FM13?

 

Since 2003 we have been providing a Launcher file with our solution (vertical market locked solution) that each user places on their computer desktop. When opened, this launcher file runs a script that fires a remote startup script in the hosted solution file. Under Manage External Data Sources we have used the following:

fmnet:/*/Praesto

 

Now with the move to FM13 Platform this is not working. We get and error that the file can not be found. We have been forced to put the IP address of the server in the path.

However, from the workstation when we go to Open Remote and Local Hosts we see the server and remote files just fine. Bonjour is doing its thing and there are no firewall issues.
