      Upgrading Filemaker 5.5 to 13

      Post

      Hi!

      I have converted a customers files.fp5 to version 13. So far so good. But when starting main .fp13 file i get promted with username and password. In version 5.5 only password had to be given to access - no username promt box exist. How do i get passed this?

      Regards,

      Mattias

          Enter the 5.5 password as both the account name and the password. (A user name is different from an account name).

          Then, when you have the file open, go into Manage | Security and change the account name to something other than the password.

          Another potential gotcha: Passwords in 5.5 were not case sensitive. They are in 13. So if you can't get the file open, you may want to re-open the 5.5 file and check to see how the password was capitalized. (Back then you could see the actual passwords instead of bullets like you do in the current version.)
