On a windows pc, W10, I open filemaker.
Help, click on check for updates, Download.
Where does the download save to please.
If you need to manually update filemaker 15, get the downloaded update from the support site:
Get A FileMaker Download or Database Update | FileMaker
All the updaters are there for download.
The update has been downloaded, just not installed.
I would like to file the download and install it.
If the auto-installer does not work, the process for updating is still the same. Don't mess with any of the auto installer files that were downloaded since you can't be sure why auto-update did not work.
Download the correct version update from the link above and install it manually.
If you don't know that's fine.
The location of a downloaded file is controlled by the settings for your default browser isn't it? Doesn't what you are doing launch a web browser application?
If you click save-as when downloading a file it will let you specify where to place the file. If you click save it will usually place the download file in the download folder. If you are using EDGE, click the star icon when the 3 line , then select download.
Do you not know where files download from your browser?
I apologize, it's not really clear to me WHAT information you're looking for.
Can't you just use windows explorer or mac's finder to search for the update file if you lost it?

The application launches or opens.
Help>Check for updates
Filemaker checks for updates....
Update available, select download.
When completed, message displays to install.
Where does the file download to / where does the file install from.
It's not in downloads
if the file was in downloads truly I wouldn't be posting here
Yes, but filemaker doesn't open a browser to download a file
There is no save as option, as the file seems to be downloaded internally in filemaker
good idea, what is the file called
If you "Check for Updates" within FileMaker and choose to download now, once the download is finished you should be prompted to install it. There might be some reference within your TEMP files... but I'm not sure. What are you trying to accomplish? Why are you looking for this "file"?
If you want something distinct to file away for future reference, just download the updater from FileMaker that mikebeargie referenced earlier:
I also prefer using standalone updater. FM15 and 16 had troubles on updater in help menu. (FM17 also fail when some files are opened, closing them force quit updater.)
On FM16, I found downloaded file at
but the AppData folder is hidden by default.
