 Web Companion settings dissapear
Hello,

When I close filemakerpro unlimited 5.5 and reopen it later with the
same database the plugin setting for Web companion is off. So
everytime I have to configure the web Companion again.
Is this normal? What can be done about it?

Is the database hosted on a FM Server?

Sounds to me like the actual database is served from FM Server.

If this is the case, you need to close it on FM Server,
open it with a normal version of FM, make the changes you want,
and reopen it on FM Server - sharing and plugins are not
able to be done on a hosted file, you need to be the host and
sole user for them to 'stick'

Hello Tony,

I've installed FMPro unlimited 5.5 on a win2000 server. Is this what
you mean by FM server?
If this is the case, then yes , the db is hosted on a FM server.
I also installed FM on my laptop and the webcompanion checkbox is
unchecked when I reopen FM.

No, FM Unlimited is separate from FM Server...

If the database isn't shared on WC and opened in the server you get the
symptoms you've described.  I'm afraid I don't have a solution if you are
using the client (Unlimited) to share the DBs...
