Runtime Calendar Error

I need help urgently.

I just found that a completely working SC with Dayback calendar solution has a problem after I compile it into a runtime.

I get the following error when trying to access the calendar.

Hi Ken,

This is unfortunately a limitation of FileMaker runtimes and the fmp url protocol. The way the DayBack calendar interacts with FileMaker is not readily compatible with runtime solutions. DayBack uses FileMaker's fmp url protocol to call scripts in FileMaker. At this FM Community thread, it sounds that it may be possible to get around this by redefining the protocol handler at the OS level, causing all fmp urls to be directed to the runtime: https://community.filemaker.com/thread/78686?tstart=0 . However, this might only be a possible solution for Mac. Other plugins could potentially be used to get around this (also mentioned in that thread).

SeedCode Complete with DayBack still has our Pro calendar integrated for WebDirect. Before you compile the runtime, try changing the calendar file's OnFirstWindowOpen script from "Upon Opening" to "Upon Opening WebDirect". This should load the settings for the WebDirect calendar so that it can be used instead of DayBack.

I truly hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions on this.

All the best,
