I'm having the same problem! Please let me know if you get an answer to this.
I'm running the FM Pro 13 trial version and have downloaded the migration tool so I can move my Bento 4 database across to FM Pro but every time I open the migration tool I get this message.
"Database requires upgrade. Only Bento 4.1.1 and Bento 4.1.2 databases are supported"
Clicked "Okay" and it says "No Database found" so I then choose File > Open and select my database at which point it crashes.
In FM Pro I have tried Converting an Existing File, I select "Bento Data Source" and it crashes immediately.
Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong please or give me some advice on what I need to do?
konnector and Richard Hang Hong:
Thank you for your posts.
First, make sure you do not have an older version of Bento on your machine. The reason being is that when you select "Bento Data Source...", FileMaker asks the operating system to launch Bento application, and it will launch the first instance of Bento it can find.
I've tried a few things here, and I discovered that if I have Address Book integration turned on in Bento 4.1.2, then I do get the same error as konnector. That is, "You must have Bento 2 or later...".
The only time I get "No Database found" is when there is no database in the default directory:
<User Account> -> Library -> Application Support -> Bento -> bento.bentodb
At no time do I receive a crash. With that said, what version of Bento are you using? And, where is the bento.bentodb file located?
4.1.2 only installed, in correct default directory.
any other files possibly contributing to the failure of both bento launch and FP import?
The more I play with this, the more I discover.
With Address Book integration turned off, I do get the ability to import a Bento Library (as mentioned earlier), but I just discovered that no matter which Library I select to import, no records are imported. Even if I select importing into a new table, the fields are created, but no records are imported.
