Yes, thanks, I have seen that. But isn't it possible for the software to be too old for the operating system? So I'm trying to find out what is the oldest version of Filemaker that is compatible with OS X 6.8.
Yes it is possible and there are version that will not run on newer version. The chart states The minimum for Version 7 is Mac OS X 10.2.8 which is a higher version than you state you have, which too me means it will not run on OSX 6.8. I don't have an old MAC nor do I have FM 7 to test. The only thing I can go on is the chart.
I believe RIck was asking about OSX 10.6.8 -
FM7 was released in March 2004. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FileMaker
OSX Snow Leopard (10.6) was released in Jun 2009 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_OS_X_Snow_Leopard
Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard compatibility with FileMaker 9 and earlier versions
