Trouble with Filemaker Pro 7 on Windows 8 PC
Hi, I am trying to get some advice. I am trying to download Filemaker Pro7 on to my PC Windows 8. What has happened is the gallery I work for in San Francisco wants me to work from my home in Portland OR, so they sent me the disk. I successfully downloaded the disk, but now am having trouble.
I cannot get it to connect to their host down there. I don't even know how to begin doing this. When I called, I was told that this version of Filemaker is outdated, and they could not give me advice on what to do. I have all the information I need from the gallery, I just dont know how to set it up. Please any help would be greatly appericated.
When I go to open remote, the following error message "Filmaker cannot share or be a client of a file because the networking stack could not be intalized"
I got it to download, but when I go to register it, Filemaker Pro7 is not an option.
Please please please any advice would be greatly appericated!
The software is not compatible with Windows 8. You will need to install the software on an old computer. Compatible means it will not run as designed / expected. There has been 7 version of FM since that version was released.
The best solution is to upgrade to a more current version of Filemaker.
