Hi at all,
anyone testing Apple´s High Sierra already?
How about compatiblity of FileMaker and FileMaker runtimes?
Any new Apple inventions regarding security and installation?
Thanks in advance
Now that High Sierra is out in the wild - any news regarding compatibility of FM (full versions and runtime) with the new system?
How about older versions like 13, 14 and 15?
I have a first customer that told me about crashes of FM13 runtime on 10.13 with the import of csv files - can anyone confirm?
Although I haven’t tried Runtimes yet, going by this KnowledgeBase article I would think that v15 or newer would be ok and older versions would likely have problems:
FileMaker Platform and macOS High Sierra | FileMaker
I have all bases covered with FileMaker 12 , 15 and 16 Runtimes available for download. Frankly I wouldn't be surprised if 12 runs better than 13-15. In either case 16 is an absolut 'must have' update and might be Runtime's last stand. Highly recommended - especially if you are using Windows. It's fantastic in every regard.
I am with you regarding 16 and Windows, but 16 kills so many operating system versions on the Mac side of life, that we stayed with 13 so far.
Testing myself I can see that in FM13 runtime every custom dialogue and a click on any of the offered buttons crashes the application immediately and all the time.
In my case - since I have a dialogue with "Test", "Buy", "Register" at startup of my demos - all apps have to be pushed to FM16 just because of that.
I can confirm that this also happens with FileMaker 12 Runtimes. It's the first macOS that is incompatible with the 'classic' FileMaker 12 version going all the way back to OS X 10.6 ! That certainly was a long run. FM 15 - FM 16 Runtimes seem to work fine and no issues where reported by my users so far.

Indeed. Additionally with FileMaker 16 the type of Windows editions (Pro/Ultimate) is as important as the version number (10/8.1). Minimum requirements are:
Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise
Windows 8.1 Standard or Pro
Windows 7 (SP1) Professional or Ultimate
