Initial Connection details
« on: December 17, 2012, 04:29:59 PM »
I am working to understand some details of  how FMBooks connector interacts with the Quickbooks company file during the initial connect process, the process that includes the user being prompted with the QuickBooks - Application Certificate screen.  When FMBooks is establishing this initial connection to the company file, while the file is simultaneously open in QuickBooks by user admin in single user mode, what functions can the plug-in perform at that point?  For example, can it make any API call in the SDK for QuickBooks?  Does QB consider any request from the plug-in to be coming from a user with full admin privileges?

While the FM Books Connector is initiating the connection with QuickBooks, no other function calls may go through; FileMaker (and the FM Books Connector) are "locked" until the completion of PCQB_BeginSession. After the initial connection has been made, if QuickBooks remains in single-user mode as an Admin user, any subsequent calls are made with the access privileges of the QuickBooks Admin user.
