Can anyone please explain how to uninstall FileMaker Server 11. I have a Developer's License key, but no .dmg.
Not sure how to do it without the FMS 11 installer. I have the .dmg if you can think of a way for me to get it to you. File size is too big for attachment.
Checked FileMaker support sit and don't see a link for FMS 11 even though a trial for FileMaker Pro 11 is still available. Sorry.
Here's an extract from FileMaker 11 Installation and New Features Guide for uninstall on Mac:
Uninstalling FileMaker Pro 11
To uninstall FileMaker Pro 11:
The pathname for the preferences file is:
For FileMaker Pro: <home>/Library/Preferences/ com.filemaker.client.pro.plist
For FileMaker Pro Advanced: <home>/Library/Preferences/ com.filemaker.client.advanced.plist
And here is the link to the online PDF of the document:
I think Leo was trying to uninstall FileMaker Server 11. Perhaps I misunderstood.
Is running the installer from the FMS 11 disk image the only way to uninstall? I have the same problem and I'm guessing there are more like us. Maybe they can make the FMS 11 image available for those of us who need to uninstall. FileMaker, are you listening?
This is why good archives are essential.
If you installed it in the first place.. I can't understand why you would not still have the installer.
Everything is electronic these days I just had an argument with my daughter about misplacing the OS installerDVDs which came with the new MacBook Pro and she insisted there weren't any... She was right! The whole thing is geared for instant download from Apple. We are going to have to be even more neurotic about backing up downloaded installers.
I guess your daughter, Leo and I have been properly reprimanded.
Sorry - missed that you were trying to uninstall FMS not FMP.
I've done some research and it looks like the only way is via the installer. The FMS11 trial is no longer available (I've tried) so you're out of look there.
Whenever I've dealt with FileMaker directly they have been very helpful - suggest you give them a call 0845 603 9100
I have the installer but it weighs in at 311 MB. If all else fails, contact me back channel and I can mail you a CD with it. I'm not sure how else to get you a file that big.
Thanks Brett. Uninstall successful.
And thanks to everyone who weighed in.
How did you manage to do it without the installer?
I'm not aware of any way to remove FMS 11 without the installer.
Hi Carlo. Download FMS 11 trial version from my dropbox, and you should be able to uninstall. (File will only be available for a limited time, so act now.)
