To my knowledge you can runtimes for Mac OS X using Mac FileMaker, but need to make runtimes for Windows using Windows FileMaker....i.e you have to make the runtimes on the same platform that you are deploying to.
Awesome thank you... Would you happen to have Filemaker Advance on Windows? It kinda sucks that id have to purchase it all over again just to convert... id pay for it..
Existing license covers both and you should already have both installers if yours was legit purchase.
Oh wow, thank i just use my license key on my windows computer and it worked... Thank you so much.. so if i purchase an upgrade it can be used for both my computers???
Read it again.
Which part are you specifically referring to as false?
installed, but not running? clarify please?
Read the second computer/home/portable section.
Note that the "other" computer doesn't need to be running the same OS.
As I understand and read the combined texts of the license agreement I am not allowed to use the same license number more than once at a time.
But I may install my FileMaker license on two computers, your stationary and your desktop, but not use them simultaneously. It could be my home and my work computer.
The question is then:
- May I install FileMaker Pro Advanced on my Mac and on my PC (or my VM PC on the Mac) at the same time?
The answer here is probably yes.
I can personally only use once at a time, and that's probably OK.
Thus you should be allowed to close your FileMaker Pro Advanced on you Mac, go to your PC and work there with the solution, creating run time files etc.
At codeo we have a 25 seat ASLA agreement, so I never really thought about this problem since we are not 25 people at the company.
But you are developing FileMaker solutions. If I where you I would join the FBA.
It is not the most important part of your agreement, but one of the advantages is that you will get an additional license of FileMaker Pro Advanced. And if my conclusion about your right to use your one license on two platforms is not correct, then the FBA license will grant you an extra one.
But if you are eligible jo join the FBA (please have al look at the PDF) then you should really consider it. The main advantage is not the extra FMPA license, but the access to all the other parts of the program.
Knowledge base article (#6594) - Using FileMaker software on a computer running virtual environment software | FileMaker
"The FileMaker End User License Agreement allows you to install and use only one copy of the Software on a single computer at a time. Even though both Windows and Macintosh versions of the Software may be provided in multiple languages, you are only licensed to use one version of the Software on one platform (i.e., the Windows or OS X version) in one language at a time. You may not run or use more than one instance of the Software on the same computer (e.g., using virtualization or other technologies, such as Parallels, VMware, etc.) at the same time."
Based on the literal reading of the above "install and use" condition, I believe that the FileMaker license allows one to install the software more than once on a single computer, but restricts using multiple installations at the same time (e.g. simulating a network environment). This would allow one to install the Windows version under a VM for testing and runtime development. If this is incorrect, hopefully, FileMaker will clarify.
As i see it Bruce is right; install on two computers (Mac/PC) but never use it on more than one at a time .... which by the way will be pretty difficult for one person.
You may want to check the Runtime Shrinker 2.0 included in our MBS Plugin 6.0.x.
It can shrink the size of a runtime. Sometimes saves over 50% of size!
