.fp7 to .fmp12 conversion with a Runtime

I currently use .fp7 files for backup-scripts in my runtime ("save as copy") and for restore (via import script steps).

Now I want to make a new version of my runtime using FileMaker 12 but need the users to restore there user data from their .fp7 files into the new runtime, so they can work with their data in the new runtime.


But the convert script step reports an error, because the backup-files are not part of the solution (even if they were generated by a Runtime solution in the first place).


Is there any workaround for getting the data out of the .fp7 databases into an FileMaker 12 Runtime?


Thanks for your help!
