FileMaker Pro 10 and FileMaker Pro 11 have been tested and certified with Windows 7. Earlier versions of FileMaker have not been tested or certified with Windows 7. These products were developed and released before Windows 7 became available.
While these earlier versions may install and run on Windows 7, you may encounter installation and stability issues for which there is no resolution. We strongly recommend you use current FileMaker software.
