Bug? Forms Designer in Win Desktop Enterprise

Postby jbarclayIndiana » Wed Feb 04, 2015 11:36 am

I recently purchased HanDBase for iPad (with Forms add-on) and the Enterprise Windows Desktop add-on for my Win7 desktop PC. First, using the iPad, I created a simple database and one custom Form. Then, after installing the Win Desktop Enterprise add-on, the first thing I did was upload the database and form from my iPad to my Windows Desktop using Desktop Connect. Worked fine. I then opened the database in Windows Desktop HanDBase. I clicked Properties, then Forms, to further edit my custom form. I received a window message that HanDBase Forms was not installed, with an OK (dismiss) button and a button for "More information" on Forms, that took me to the web site. This happened repeatedly. I couldn't get Forms Designer to launch so that I could edit my already-created custom form. Scratched my head, panicked a little. Then, I closed Win Desktop HanDBase and separately launched Forms Designer, which opened fine. I noodled around there for a bit, was able to open my already-created custom form, and to create new ones. Closed Forms Designer.

Went back into Win Desktop HanDBase. Now Forms Designer launched seamlessly when I chose Properties --> Forms from within an opened database. Seems like a switch got flipped when I manually opened Forms Designer, permitting it now to open seamlessly from within Win Desktop HanDBase. Don't know if this is intended or my human error.

I think I'm good for now, thanks.
