    Filemaker Pro 15 windows installation issue


      Hardware:  Windows, Windows 7

      Software:  Filemaker Pro 15


      There was an issue . . .I believe it is an acknowledged bug . . . that installing filemaker 15 on Windows is problematic.  You have to un-install older versions, and installing for the whole computer (instead of just a single user) doesn't work. 


      For example, we have a conference room computer that different people log into, and FMP doesn't work, or is very difficult to get running for users other than the user it was installed under.


      Was this issue by any chance addressed in rev2 or rev3 of  v15, and if so, I assume we'd need a link to a full installer (not just updater) for that version?

          Thank you for your post.


          There was a file association issue with FileMaker Pro 15.0.1 possibly launching FileMaker Pro 14, but this issue was addressed in FileMaker Pro 15.0.2.


          Keep in mind that the FileMaker Pro 15.0.3 updater will NOT update FileMaker Pro 15.0.1.  You have to use the FileMaker Pro 15.0.2 updater to first update to FileMaker Pro 15.0.2, and then use the FileMaker Pro 15.0.3 updater to get up to FileMaker Pro 15.0.3.


          If you still have your email that contains your FileMaker Pro 15 license, use the link in that email to get a full installer to FileMaker Pro 15.0.3.
