Snapshot Links are not updated when files are converted from FP7 to FMP12

Discussion created by dburnham on Oct 31, 2014

If you have any scripts in a FileMaker v.11 or earlier database which create snapshot links with a defined filename and path, you will see that the extension given to the name of the snapshot link file is .fpsl


After converting the file to FMP12, you must edit these scripts to make the extension of the snapshot link file .fmpsl


Otherwise, the snapshot link will try to launch the earlier version of FileMaker. If you still have the application, it won't be able to open the file because it's not longer an FP7 file, or no longer on an older server, or both.
