Summary

Critical Knowledgebase article contains misleading information

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

11

Description of the issue

Knowledgebase article 11058 states: "... and update Java to the latest version". The "latest version" is now Java 7 which is incompatible with FMS 11. Since updates of Java 6 have stopped at Update 37, the article should be amended to say "update to Java 6 Update 37. Note that Java 7 is not compatible with FMS 11).

It could also further note as the article does elsewhere, that uninstalling FMS and all versions of Java and then re-installing FMS 11 (and updating to FMS 11.0v5) will result in a correct installation of Java 6 Update 37.
