Password required after file conversion


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OSX 10.7

Description of the issue

Have used Filmaker for years for my business invoicing.  Recently upgraded from version 6, as Lion (OSX 10.7) no longer uses Rosetta.  AFter conversion to FM11, I get a dialog upon file launching asking for a password.  If I select 'GUEST' I am allowed full privileges.  What I would like to do is turn this measure off, so that launching a file is a one-step process, instead of two.  I have located some articles about changing passwords, but nothing about removing this feature.  I am a single user, database is not published.  I did not have any account name or password associated with the file when is was running on version 6.  Surely there is something that I am missing here?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Launch a converted FM11 database.  (Converted from FM6)

Expected result

File launches as it did in Filemaker 6.

Actual result

Get a dialog box asking for password and account.


signing in as guest seems to grant full privileges.  Not sure why an extra step has been introduced into my workflow.
