c'mon guys what is the solution?
Thank you for the post.
Perhaps a little more information may assist us in narrowing the issue down. I apologize because when I originally responded I did not see that you were trying to install FileMaker Server 12. I have edited my questions appropriately.
What installation steps were already performed? Are the FileMaker processes running?
Thought I had provided all the info in my original post:
The FM Server is the Latest Demo Version - fms_trial_18.104.22.168a. I have installed this and started the assistant. I can get as far as the attached screenshot.

And updated my Java but this has been ineffective. I assume that I need to either obtain a different version of the FM Trial or downgrade Java to a compatable version or possibly both.
Thank you for the prompt reply.
Trying another browser would be a good next step. If the issue persists, then your idea of downgrading Java is a good one. I have seen success with Java 7 Update 6:
After switching Java versions, you might want to clear the java cache before trying again to download the FileMaker Server Admin Console Java Applet.
If the issue persists afterwards, then please let me know and we can discuss next steps.TSFalconFileMaker, Inc.
