Hello FM Group,
Has anyone gotten Send Mail via Email Client to work on FileMaker 14 64 Bit on Windows? On the FM 14 preview software, I couldn't get it to work with 64 bit Outlook or 32 bit Outlook. I haven't tried on the non preview FM 14 version which I don't have yet.
Other than the Error -1, can you provide more detail as to what isn't working when you try and use the FileMaker Pro 64-bit Send Mail script step with 64-bit Outlook.
A 32-bit application trying to interact with 64-bit Outlook is going to have problems. But the 64-bit version of FileMaker Pro 14 should play nice with the 64-bit Outlook.
Some basic things to check...
- Make sure you actually have the shipping 64-bit version of FileMaker Pro 14 for Windows installed. Note that there are different 32-bit and 64-bit installers for FileMaker Pro 14 on the Windows platform.
- Make sure you actually have the 64-bit version of Outlook installed
- If possible, try installing on a different machine that hasn't had 32-bit Outlook on it and see if that makes a difference. This is just to confirm that there isn't some crazy mix of 32-bit and 64-bit going on on your system
So the error -1 only happened when I tried 64 bit FileMaker Preview with 32 bit Outlook. When I try 64 bit FileMaker Preview with 64 bit Outlook after removing 32 bit Outlook and 32 bit Office the Send Mail via client does not report an error and does not generate an email message. It just reports the script as completed with no error if you use debugger. But no message is generated, created or sent. Sending mail via smtp server works fine but not send mail via client.
Yes, I definitely have 64 bit preview fm installed and definitely have 64 bit Outlook installed.
I don't have a great option for testing on another machine since my other computers are Windows servers and macs.
I would really first like to know if anyone else has successfully gotten 64 bit FileMaker with 64 bit Outlook to Send Mail via client successfully so I can know if it is just my configuration or whether there is a bug.
I am getting error -1 unknown error with...
FM Pro advanced 14.0.1
Outlook 2013 64 bit ( 365 small business premium)
Thank you for sharing. Are you using FM Pro advanced 14.0.1 64 bit or 32 bit when you get that error with 64 bit Outlook?
Yes FM 14 64 bit
I'm experiencing the same, Unknown Error: -1
Setup is FMPA 14.0.1 64Bit
Outlook 2010 64Bit
Added - Computer is Windows 8.1 Pro 64-Bit
Ok. Interesting. So it sounds like this may be a confirmed bug. Thank you for confirming. Interesting that yours reports the error. My 64 bit doesn't report the error, but just doesn't perform the script.
Are all three of you using Windows 7?
And it looks like both Outlook 2010 and 2013 are being used here?
I am on Window 7 64 bit
I am using Windows 7 64-bit and outlook 2013 64-bit
Our company is also experience this email. The email client has been an issue since FM13. I have contacted Filemaker on several occasions to fix this problem and no one seems to want to correct it. If you use Client FM12 with FM13 server it works properly. I am on a 64 bit architecture (Windows 7) using the 64 bit version of Outlook and it has not worked since FM12. Filemaker does not want to correct the problem. Why? I do not have an answer for this. If someone can find a resolution to this issue, I am all ears. It is severally impacting our business. This is the reason why we have not moved forward updating Filemaker. My boss is considering moving to a different software if Filemaker cannot fix this issue.
I just tested...with success
Win 7 Pro - FMA 13.0v5 - FMS 14 shipping version - outlook 2013 64 bit
Your probably aware of this option, but you could use send mail via smtp?
Yes, SMTP works but not the email client. The email client allows more versatility.
So are you saying that you got 32 bit FileMaker Pro Advanced 13 to send mail via client with Outlook 2013 64 bit with no error messages and the email sent?
Not sure how FMS 14 would affect this?
Or are you just saying you sent it with smtp which we all know already works?
