When trying to install the FMPA12 updater, I got the following error: "The updates cannot occur because you have selected a device which has not been file indexed. Enable indexing via the mdutil system utility." I spoke to someone in Tech Support at DevCon, and he suggested I check Spotlight and make sure Applications was checked; it was. I found instructions online about running mdutil in Terminal, but it said it was already loaded. I am still unable to install the update. I was also unable to install the 11 update, although it was a different error, something about not being able to find a valid copy of FMPA. I assumed it was because it was my DevCon copy. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks for any help.
