Apple support are not very helpful...they are unsure as to whether FMP can be run on a Mac. I'm sure it must be! But it is proving impossible to download the app the Mac. Any advice very welcome... Thanks Steve
You said FMP 12, so the question is what OS are you trying to use? The FMPro app that would open it (or FMGo on iPad/iPhone) relies on the OS version to match the specs:
If, OTOH, you have a FileMaker Pro file/database with the '.fmp12' extension, it can be opened with an versions 12-17 (current). Note the OS required to install these versions, in the above link.
The version 17 is the current one for sale, and there is a trial version so you can see the file. After that, a purchase would be needed to change/use the file.
Please clarify your question, if I've misunderstood.
P.S. Welcome to the FileMaker Communtiy Forum! I've also moved your question to Discussions so more will see it and reply with suggestions. Come back with more questions as needed!
