FMP Trial Installer just opens a Terminal Window...


FileMaker Pro


current Trial

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.7.2

Description of the issue

Posted in FM Pro Forum, but perhaps better as issue?

I'm sure I'm missing something, but since the FMP for Mac (Lion) instructions don't mention anything about installing through Terminal, I'm not sure what to do next.

I've downloaded the trial, opened the package, doubleclicked the FileMaker Pro 11 Trial Installer folder, and double-clicked the installer file.  I get a terminal window titled FileMaker Pro 11.mpkg - bash - 84x24.

This looks like an installer log...?  But then how do I actually install?

Thanks so much for any help!  I can usually find my way around software when it comes to a GUI, but have no idea what to do with Terminal unless I'm following a set of specific command instructions.
