FMP 12 Install Fails on Windows Server 2008


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows Server 2008

Description of the issue


I'm trying to install FileMaker Pro 12 on a Windows Server 2008 machine, to run as a Terminal Services app.

We had FileMaker Pro 11 working fine on this machine, but there seems to be a problem with the installer for FMP12- I get the attached error on trying to run the installer.

Extract from the tech spec. page at the end of this post - looks as if it is supported on this platform - help please!




Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services
(FileMaker Pro 12 only)

The clients listed below are supported by FileMaker, Inc. at this time. Other clients may work as expected but they have not been tested for use with FileMaker Pro and are not currently supported.
