Hi, I am new to FileMaker and little confused with the FM products: FileMaker Go, Web Direct, FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Pro (for connection), FileMaker Pro Advanced, FileMaker Server, FileMaker Cloud. Not sure which one is service or software or maybe already included in server. Not sure how they work but seem to be very powerful. I am also confused with licensing..which product required license and which one not?

Here is what I want to achieve:

1. I would like to use my current .fp7 files and convert them to .fmp12 format using FileMaker Pro 16 which is the only available software I can purchase from FileMaker store

2. Make the database available to others via web. How this can be achieve?

3. Are there any licences that I would need to buy?



I'm looking for some advise which path I should choose to get the best results


thanks in advance
