FM Pro 7 will not open with Mac OS10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS10.6.8

Description of the issue

I have been using FM Pro 7 on my Intel 2GHz iMac for 10 years without a problem but now it will not open.

I have reinstalled the software but this does not solve the problem.  I have no wish to upgrade as this version has served me well over the years and as I am retired I have no need to use it for business use.

FM Pro 7 is no longer supported by FM so I would be very grateful if someone out there is able to help as I have many FMP7 docs that I am unable to open now.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Install FM Pro 7.03 on a Mac with OS 10.6

Expected result

FM Pro should OPEN

Actual result

It doesn't open

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error message. Application opens splash screen and then closes without opening the programme

Configuration information

Started up in Safe Mode then restarted, still not working
