I had a licensed FileMaker Version for Mac & Windows.
Want to re-install FMP12 in my new MacBook, but dmg file setup has crashed.
Required your suggestions & solutions to solve the issue quickly.
Thanks in advance,
Your new MacBook is also not on the list of supported OS's which may be the reason it is not installing System Requirements for FileMaker Pro 12 and FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced | FileMaker The supported OS's say that FileMaker 12v5 is required for OSX 10.9 so if your installer is trying to install a version older than that then that may be the reason it is not installing. You may need an installer that is atleast 12v5 if it will work at all.
I suggest contacting FileMaker and asking for another copy of the installer, you may not get it as FileMaker 12 support has ended FileMaker announces the end of support for FileMaker 12 product family | FileMaker
Oh, Ya Carl !
My Mac has Sierra Version. It was not compatible for FMP12, right!
I cant degrade my OS, probably its a bad idea, i know!
Ok, Thank you so much CarlSchwarz for the quick answer!
try to do an assisted install. FM11/12 won't install manually on sierra
- copy the installer from the dmg to Your harddrive
- if 'assisted install' (or similar...) is visible on the dmg, copy that as well
-> edit that assisted install file, fill in SN, etc.
if that file is not visible, it's in the installer package, right click on the file, the 3 entry should be something like show package (don't have english system) and edit that
do not use 'Word' to edit... use Textedit or BBEdit,
after those changes, run the installer (the one on Your harddrive...)
Ya mschneider! Thanks for the suggestion..
I have tried to edit this same as assisted install.txt in Notepad(WIndows Text Editor).
Whether i open that it was locked. So i will select unlock, there itself it will ask for duplicate.
If i make duplicate that text file, then how could i import that latest text file into that dmg?
was i explain correctly?
after copying to Your desktop, it should be unlocked - but You can set the user access in security (right klick... properties)
the file name must be left unchanged, installer and ass. inst. in the same directory
Will inform you about this quickly!
