Description

 

In-App update problem:

 

Clicking the "Auf Updates prüfen…" (i.e. Check for Updates… in german) menu item…

 

Auf Updates pruefen.png

 

…does (/did) nothing

 

HOWEVER ....

 

After changing the language to english* it worked!

 

* Steps to change the language:

 

  1. open the FileMaker app package
  2. navigate to Contents > Resources
  3. delete the de.lproj folder or rename it to de-OFF.lproj

 

 

How to replicate

 

Don't know, because a co-workers german version updated no problem.

 

Maybe:

 

Set OS language to german

Start FileMaker

Check the Help/"Hilfe" menu

 

Workaround (if any)

 

 

Change to english
