I have used FileMaker since about 1990. Now I have FM 12 Pro Advanced in my Mac.

I created a database with Mac version and then would like to spread is as a "Standalone" app in Windows. For that I need to run FileMaker Pro Advanced in Windows.

The problem is, that I can not install FileMaker on my Windows 7 machine. My FM 12 is an upgrade and Windows installer says "You cannot install or uninstall FileMaker on this system. Please refer to the system requirements in the installation instructions for more information"

I tried to install earlier versions. FM Pro Advanced 8 and 8v3 win succeeded, but 8.5 update tells me: "The updater cannot find a qualifying product on the system."

The Windows computer is Packard Bell with Pentium 4, 3.20 Ghz, 1 Gb RAM, 32 bit, Windows 7 home premium.

What can I do?
