      Summary

      FileMaker 10 updater ran with FM 10 Advanced running, and updated it anyways.

      Description of the issue

      FileMaker 10 Advanced was open and running on my Mac running OS X.4.11 when I ran the updater.  At no time did it ask me to quit FM before installing, it just went ahead and installed.  When I quit FM and restarted it, it had the new version code on it.  I'm guessing that Vise was supposed to ask me to quit the software at some point, but it never did. Kudos though - for once an updater didn't search every mounted volume on my Mac like prior Vise installers did.  Why is FileMaker (an Apple owned company) using Vise anyways?  It's had issues for years, including being very difficult to use with ARD and other Package-based admin programs, making it very difficult to mass-install updates quietly.
