               Thank you for the post.

                

               I am unable to replicate. I performed the following steps to attempt to replicate:

                

               1. Installed FileMaker Pro 12.0v1 on a Mac OS X 10.8.5 iMac

               2. Opened FileMaker Pro 13.0v3

               3. File > New From Starter Solution… > Assets.fmp12 > Save

               4. Quit FileMaker Pro 13.0v3

               5. Opened FileMaker Pro 12.0v1

               6. File > Open… > Assets.fmp12

                

               Actual Result: File does not open and an error is received (screenshot attached).

                

               Perhaps, I am missing a step to replicate?

                 TSFalcon:

                 There seem to be a inconsistent behavior on this. I have my FM13 solution opened with FMPA12:

                 - No error-message

                 - Popovers (new FM13 function) are hidden

                 - connect FMGo 13 to FM12 hosted solution: Popovers work √ SlideElements work √
