Building our TAS system includes installing other sub applications serving paging, email and faxing installing our ef_Star application works only as 32 bit.
Generally we haven't to now supported FileMaker in Mac OS. For special situations now, the app does runs under MAC, (our other programmer recently confirmed this).

Opinion Dual Video Drivers Card,

Serial ports and Modems
If you required PollStar, it reads data input flow using a dedicated serial port.
KisStar system requires 2 modems, one for the PageMaster paging application the other for Dialing out and faxing using efStar.
Installing modems, plug n plug assume to much, often selecting the wrong ports. Its important that all serial and modem devices be configured on different ports Irq's, etc.. not conflicting.
For a demo, or single operator workstation XP Home works.
The XP Home Edition has problems setting privileges in a network or inability to disable 'Simple File Sharing' required for multiple workstations sending Emails and Faxes to efStar. Setting exception work around does not work.
- Simple File Sharing is enabled by default on Windows XP Professional systems that are members of a workgroup (typically used in small networks) rather than a domain (typically used in large corporate networks). For full details, see our article on Simple File Sharing. There are no passwords or access restrictions and, with one exception described in the article, everything that's shared is accessible by everyone on the network. Simple File Sharing is the only type of sharing available in Windows XP Home Edition.
- By disabling Simple File Sharing, you can specify an Access Control List (ACL) for each shared disk or folder. Using an ACL gives you much greater control over shared data, since it lets you determine the specific users that will have access as well as the level of access they will receive.
Disabling Simple File Sharing is necessary in order to enable the creation of Access Control Lists for shared disks and folders:
- Click Start | My Computer | Tools | Folder Options | View .
- Scroll to the bottom of the list of advanced settings and un-check Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended) .
- Click OK.
