Could you please confirm you’re trying to install FIELD 5 online through Falcon Portal? In case you are, could you please provide me with the Falcon Portal ID you’re using?

 

In case your Internet access goes through a firewall or proxy, could you please check with your IT if following settings are implemented at firewall/proxy level?

 

In case you’re using Firefox or Chrome, could you please proceed as described below (information also available on Falcon Portal under “Library>Field>FAQ”):

??Yes you can run FIELD 5 online (from Falcon Portal) using Firefox. However, it appeared that Microsoft ClickOnce technology is not fully supported following upon Firefox upgrade (from version 3.5). The fix for this consists in installing the Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant plugin from Mozilla addons before running FIELD 5 installation online. This is the only Microsoft official add-on; it requires .NET 3.5 SP1.

?Yes you can run FIELD 5 online (from Falcon Portal) using Chrome. However, it appeared that Microsoft ClickOnce technology is not fully supported with Chrome. The fix for this consists in installing the ClickOnce for Google Chrome extension before running FIELD 5 installation online.

MOSTLY RESOLVED

 

to Brian.Ray
Brian,
To recap.
We have 3 collections from USBKey  installed and running correctly.
We were forced to :
1. uninstall field.
2. find and rename C:/field5/
3. find and rename c:/users/…….roaming/appdata/….  (((from my weak memory)))))
reinstall field from usb stick.
reinstall collections.
repeated process 2 times.
all worked good.
The only problem we have is a nag window every time we open Field
No Sweat, No problem.
I get the idea that I am mismanaging the “set Default Collection Path”…..and “Install a collection from local disk.”  …… Seems like I am making conflicting choices, as with many things in my life.
Attached:
Screen cap of system info.
Screen cap of nag window.
Thanks Brian.  You and Aron got us going.  Could you please forward this to Aron, and thank him as well.?
