ISSUE: This is only found when FileMaker Pro 15 is hosting your Crate Pro 6 files 

Opening a favorited file results in the following error:

The temporary file “FMS_76E830F686A28BD56FEDAA83DCBF450C.fch” could not be created on the system disk.  Use a different name, make more room on the disk, or unlock it.

This issue occurs under the following conditions:

  • FileMaker Pro is installed on the same machine as FileMaker Server.
  • The file contains a file reference using an IP address.
  • The Favorite Host was favorited using a computer name rather than the IP address.


Favorite the host using the IP address instead of the computer name.

On the host computer ensure that your Windows permissions for your Crate Pro files AND FileMaker Pro are set to Full Permission for any user connecting from a client. (Right click on each file and select Properties > Security: Each user should have full permissions. )

This issue has been resolved in FileMaker Pro 15.0.2.  Download the update to FileMaker Pro here.  *** Ensure you have updated to FileMaker Pro 16 if eligible or have updated to FileMaker Pro 15.0.3 if not eligible.

FileMaker Pro 15 should be removed before installing FileMaker Pro 16

*Crate Pro 6.4xx versions will open on FileMaker 13 through FileMaker 16. Older versions will not open on FileMaker Pro 16.
