    Last Mac OS that will run Filemaker 6

    RichardBurton

      Hello Experts!

       

      I have a client using a Mac who dug up a Filemaker 6 database I built years ago. Can someone tell me which Mac operating system stopped running Filemaker 6? Was it the one that stopped uning Rosetta? And which one was that? Sorry for being lazy and looking this all up. But I figure someone on this list could tell me right away. It's been years since I've dealt with FM6 (thank goodness).

       

      Thank you!

          Hi Richard

           

          Why not just upgrade it to FMP 11?

           

          Sounds like you just want to see what it does, so if some bits don't work, it won't be a disaster.

            Hi Richard,

             

            10.6 is the last OS to run FM 6

             

            Best regards,

              Why would you make that assumption? My client wants to run it as is. An upgrade from FM6 to FM11 to FM12 is time-consuming an costly. But thanks for responding.

                Long Live FileMaker 6 !  The last great version.  Drop dead simple, and idiot proof
