Client just bought a new Mac Mini - came with OSX 10.8.3 insstalled.

Ran their FMServer 11.02 installer.

Installed but would not load - at least could not get admin app to run.

Found out that I needed to install FMS 11.0.5 (tx to FMI for making fiull install available).

Installed it - after some "must update Java" interludes.

From the Start page at "localhost:16000" has to "click here if the Admin Console did not launch automatically".

It did not and clicking "here" did nothing.

Suggestion that I try the command line.

Dug out the HELP(?) file.

It suggests this: "fmsadmin start -y -u admin -p pword" - made appropriate substitutions and get a page explaining usage instead of anything I would find useful - the command does not execute. Is there something missing from HELP? The user account is an admin account

I am not a command line person - I avoided computers until a nice GUI was available.

What have I missed?


How on earth can I get this install to work? Are there "evil" version of Java I should avoid? The Java update installed V7 Update 21.


I think the last time I ever had command line "luck" was 5 or 5.5 running on Linux.





...on the other hand it seems as though winter may have ended up here in Canada.
