I received the following message from FileMaker Developer Relations:


Please note, after downloading and applying the FileMaker Pro 12.0v4 or FileMaker Pro 12.0v4 Advanced update on Mac OS X, you must re-start your machine before using the software.


Best regards,

It does not appear to be literally true - I launched FileMaker without restarting and it appeared to work fine.


So what is really happening here?


If you launch 12.0v4 without restarting is there really a problem?


If you have launched 12.0v4 without restarting, and then go ahead and restart, does that solve the problem?
