I have been having a devil of a time trying to get FMS 15 installed.
Server hardware is windows Server 2008 R2. Plenty (100s of G) of disk space & memory (30G or so).
Details of the problem are told here:
I was able to finally get the initial installation going, but I have a few questions.
First of all, my workaround was to go into the Filemaker Server 15 / files / and directly run the file “setup.exe” as administrator.
1) Is this a bug (that I have to do this)? I'm thinking it must be some kind of OS/permissions issue, but neither I nor my (very knowledgeable) IT manager can figure out what.
2) Even if it isn’t, is what I am doing safe? Am I missing anything crucial by not being able to run it from the package level?
THEN, I went to install the updater (15.0.3) and things got even weirder. I just get this display:
When I go into the Filemaker Server 15 Updater folder, and try to run Setup.exe directly, same thing. And when I go into the Files folder, and try to run the updater file there, it won’t let me.
