Filemaker server or filemaker pro?
Filemaker pro is a 32 bit app so it isn't likely to work on the 64 bit version. Server should run fine. I have filemaker server 10 running on a 64 bit win 2008 server right this minute.
Thanks for the quick response!
I was curious if FM 11 Pro will run on Server 2008 x64.
It doesn't necessarily have to run in full 64 bit mode, i understand that it is a native 32-bit app, but most 32 bit apps will run in a 64-bit environment, i just want to make sure before taking the plunge.
If i do need to go to FM server 11, can the clients connect using their existing FM 4 software running on the client PCs?
Neither server no pro will work with filemaker 4 clients. The clients will also need to upgrade. For more on server and pro, you can check the specs filemaker keeps for each in the knowledge base.
thanks a bunch Phil!
I recently installed FMP11 on my local machine and have no problems at all with it, can run web publishing at http://10.160.16.209 etc.
I have access to a dedicated server running MS Server 2008 x64 as well. There are two drives on it, and the D: drive hosts files for the web server like the home page for site that is listed in my email.
Can I install the FMProServer on C:? Will it affect the file delivery and Flash Streaming Interactive Media Server we have on D: as well?
FMP will offer a "perfect" solution for a new client, however when I started to install Server I got a dialog box stating "Don't install on the same machine as a file server."
If not, how can I publish interactive web files like the ones from my db on local machine to this URL? I cannot use static files.
This is a time sensitive project so i would appreciate a answer, thank you very much.
"i understand that it is a native 32-bit app, but most 32 bit apps will run in a 64-bit environment,"
Come to think of it, I do also have filemaker 10 installed on that server. I use it once in a great while to make "on the spot" changes to a file after first closing it from the server console and a robot file on the server is opened late at night by windows task scheduler to run a script that has to be run from a client instead of the server. I haven't had any problems with it.
Thanks Phil for the indirect response, so far, so good, - installed in seconds and I can see make published pages on the internal network of the server... next step to get them to the whole world.
You've piggybacked your question onto a thread dealing with a different issue. I haven't answered your question as it is outside my current experience and knowledge. You may want to post such questions to the filemaker server forum in the future.
