Hi Ramil,

Great to hear from you. The problem with installing the FS Mobile Beta and FS Desktop to the same database is that the public synonyms that point to Formspider API's will point to the 2nd installation you make. So if you install FS Mobile Beta after you installed FS Desktop, all the FS Desktop API's you used in your code will suddenly point to FS Mobile Beta installation.

This is easy to fix though. If you have two Formspider installation in the same database (regardless of them being mobile or desktop), you have to manage the synonyms at the datasource schema level instead of using global synonyms.

To point a schema to the FS Desktop installation, click the Tools -> API Synonyms and Grants menu item in the Formspider Desktop IDE Toolbar. Select the Datasource Schema you want to configure. Note that the script in the text area will be updated depending on the schema you select. Click the Create Synonyms button.

Next, go the the Grant Scripts tab. Run the script in the text area, in the schema that has FS Desktop installed.

That's it. You are all set to go.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards, Yalim
