Summary

Password issues on converted files after FMP Advanced 13.0v5 update

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13.0v5

Operating system version

Mac Mavericks 10.9.5

Description of the issue

I have been using some files with 13.0v4 that I had converted years ago from FMP 6. I could open them all using "Admin" account and leaving the password blank.

After applying the 13.0v5 update, this password no longer works for any of the files.

One file (that, at one time, had a password in FMP 6) works using its OLD password in both Account and Password.

Other files that had never had passwords, don't work with any combination I know of,

Help!

Steps to reproduce the problem

try to open the file in any way (from Finder, from Recent Files, from Favorites, from a script in another file).
password box presents itself.
No known password works!

Expected result

File opens using Admin plus blank password

Actual result

Dialog box: "The file XXXX cannot be opened using that password" (approx message)
