I have different user accounts set up for different clients, and I occasionally use Panorama X in each user space. Since my update to macOS Sierra, Panorama X works fine in the main, admin account.
However, I just tried to use it in a “client” account and it barely functioned.
The first time I tried to open a database, I got weird (to me) error messages so I quit and re-launched it. This time, I was invited to provide my e-mail address and password/code. This I did, at which point Panorama informed me that I did not have write access to some file that would allow me to log in. It asked if I wanted to duplicate this file, which I did. I then provided by e-mail address and password thingie, and the database opened.
However, when I tried to do a find in a 17,700-record database, though, I got two error dialogue boxes, one overlapping the other. The top one said:
“ChangeObject statement can only be used in a form window.”
The one beneath this said:
“You don’t own the file “_FindSelectLib.pandb” and don’t have permission to write to it. You can duplicate this document and edit the duplicate. Only the duplicate will include your changes.”
I force-quit Panorama X, which seemed to be the only way to get out of this loop.
I then double-clicked on the “duplicated” file from the credential step above, and Panorama X seemed to open. However, then it gave me another error message, which had all kinds of useless information:
How to I convince Panorama X to allow me to use my databases in other accounts on my computer?
