Doesn´t seem to be a big problem, but it is, since FileMaker runtimes can only be successfully signed under older systems than 10.9, but these new certificates only work on 10.9.

Till now we had one computer with 10.7 just for signing our FM runtime based apps. Obviously this will be no solution anymore.

And now ? FileMaker Inc - HELP !!!

Expected result

possibility to successfully codesign a FM runtime

Actual result

till now we could sign the runtimes using 10.7, but this will be no longer possible as it seems.

Workaround

NONE
