I installed Filemaker 11v3 on my new windows 7 laptop with no trouble.
I'd go to the knowledge base (see link at top of this screen) and search out the system requirements article for Filemaker 11. Then I'd compare what it specifies against the specs for your lap top to see what might be the issue.
the specs don't mention windows 7 enterprise, which is what's on the computer. and BTW, we managed to get it installed. Not exactly sure, as someone else did it. I think it may have been a 64 bit vs 32 bit issue....
Thanks for your reply though!
Hmmm, didn't have any 64 bit issues when I installed mine...
the other thing that changed was where it was being installed from..... again, someone else worked on it, so I'm not sure....but we got it installed.
