I've just upgraded to Mohave and it tells me that any software unable to run at 64 bits will be orphaned with the next major upgrade. So I'm not able to find anything in the software that tells me if it indeed does. Does anyone know?
FileMaker Pro 16 on the Mac runs only in 64-bit mode.
I was also unable to find anything on the software or in a search of the help website ... I'm not sure if we have an unambiguous answer. But I'm not a techie so that may explain my inability to see clearly ... so to speak.
The function Get(ApplicationArchitecture) running in FileMaker Pro 16 on Mac OS X will always return "x86_64" indicating that it is for the 64-bit version of FileMaker Pro. (32-bit FileMaker would return "i386" from this function.)
Programs that can run as either 32-bit or 64-bit (e.g. FileMaker Pro 14) will have a checkbox for "Open in 32-bit mode" in the Get Info box for the application. FileMaker Pro 16 does not have the "Open in 32-bit mode" box because it cannot run in 32-bit mode.
Plug-ins for FileMaker Pro 16 must be 64-bit clean since FileMaker Pro 16 cannot run 32-bit plug-ins.
(FileMaker Pro 14 on the Mac can run 32-bit plug-ins if you check the box for "Open in 32-bit mode".)
In the discussion filemaker 16 32 bit on MAC one of the FileMaker folks (TSPigeon posting as tsplatypus )states that "The option to run as a 32-bit application was removed starting in FileMaker Pro 15. The applications are now installed and will always run as 64-bit on MacOS."
Thank you all for the reassurance … this has been very helpful … Much appreciated.
