    FMP9 Server - Snow Leopard Server

    stefan

      Hello,

       

      Is there any possibillity to run fmp9 server on a snow leopard server machine?

       

      Yes, I know that FM says there is no way,

      but people can be so creative.

       

      Installing is no prob, but it will not run.

       

      Is there anyone who has experience with this issue?

       

      Many thanks,

          Let me see if I understand:

          1. FMI says it won't work. 
          2. You cannot make it work.
          3. You want to know how to make it work...

            FMS 9 is not compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.

             

            If you've got FMS 9 and really cannot afford an upgrade, run it under Windows. You could Boot Camp the machine and run Windows at native speeds, or install (Parallels, VMWare, VirtualBox) and run as a virtual machine, but take the serious performance hit.

              Stephen,

               

              That's the call.

               

              I know that at first sight, it is not possible, but sometimes men can 

              make

              something possible by using onorthodox ways.

               

              Snow Leopard doesn't support Rosetta anymore, which seems to be needed

              to run FMP9 server on it.

               

              If this peace of software is separate to get and can run with Snow 

              Leopard,

              maybe this could be a way to fix things.

               

              Another issue can be the security of the server software. I do not 

              know if the

              changes between Leopard and Snow Leopard are so big that no bypass can

              be made.

               

              Sorry for the language, but i'm not native english

               

              Thanks in advance.

               

              Greetings,
