Do you know if FM PRO 12 is supported on Mac High Sierra?
Please see here for more information on FileMaker platform compatibility when it comes to macOS High Sierra
FileMaker platform compatibility with macOS High Sierra
After reading your post , I decided to try my FM 12 Pro in macOS 10.13
mine, I am happy to say is still working
Hello DuclasAfter reading your post , I decided to try my FM 12 Pro in macOS 10.13 mine, I am happy to say is still working regards David
Running FileMaker Pro 12 with macOS 10.13 is not a certified or tested combination. Just because it appears to work does not mean it should be used. Doing so is at your own risk.
I use FM Pro 15 Advanced and FM 16 Pro myself - FM 12 is a left over from macOS 10.11
we got customers who would like to move to V16 from older versions - as soon as there are some issues solved (all scripts deleted)
further on, the changes according to the pdf engine (starting with the last patch of V14 and V15) kept customers with specific fonts (defined by their CI) on V12. There are fonts that won't work with V15 and newer - and a new CI can be really expensive..
As an example, the 'Univers' font from Adrian Frutiger won't work with V15, customers went back to V12 as that happened to them
-> there are some reasons to stay on older versions
Licencing iOS is another problem that keeps existing customers away (not just away from the latest versions): An iOS device is a personal device, not multi-user. A customer with an existing VLA asked for 3 iOS licencies (1 connection pack), costs about 8000 CHF - yes, for 3 iPads with FMGo, not additional, they already have a VLA, its just to be able to use iPads on some meetings instead of a laptop
with best regards
I just tried using FM Pro 12 after upgrading to High Sierra. Importing xml with a xslt stylesheet into a new database crashes Filemaker. It creates the file and the fields specified in the xsl stylesheet, but doesn't create any records. All was fine in Sierra.
Currently using FM13 Pro Advanced
Have a DB on a FM Host Site
After upgrading to OS High Sierra the DB file crashes when trying to load
Not sure if this is typical looking for a workaround or will have to restore mac to pre High Sierra Upgrade
Filemaker Pro 12 crashes when I try to import a file.
Since upgrading to High Sierra, FileMaker Pro 12 crashes any time I try to sort records in any of my files. Many other actions work okay. Need to sort so back to Sierra.
It seems FM12 on High Sierra is suddenly very unstable on my computers.
I just had a client from the UK send me crash logs from their FM 12 because it was constantly crashing. They had upgraded to High Sierra. It would seem that there are a lot of issues trying to run FM 12 They decided to upgrade to FMS 16 & FM 16.
I personally haven't upgraded because I have to support different versions of FM that are unsupported. As clients upgrade and support for these versions become minimal, I'll probably relegate them to an older version of OS X running in Parallels.
Some of my clients also faced problems after upgrading to High Sierra.
Mainly it was in importing excel sheets and sometimes when they print large PDFs.
I installed FM9, FM10, FM11, FM12 on macOS 10.13
- V11 installed via assisted install, maybe it was already on that machine, can't tell for sure...
- V12 installed via assisted install, won't run, says 'installation not good'
- V12 copied from a 10.11 machine into the application folder of 10.13
- V9 and V10 installed on 10.11, then copied to the application folder of the 10.13 machine
V12 crashes when going to field definitions, always
V9 and V10... they do run! got a crash the first time I started after the 'install', afterward no crashes. can define field, create formulas, pdf's, etc.
so, it doesn't smell like a 32/64bit issue...
Here (old) installations:
FMA 11 and FMA 12 working pretty normal. No problem with defining fields. Didn't test other things.
no idea, what You are doing - but there are so much messages, postings from users who DO have crashes after crashes....
in our testenvironment too, older FM will crash (not V9, not V10), no plugins involved..
I just updated the System since OS X is existing and from one MacBook to the next. No clean install ...
