I am unfamiliar with FM Converter. However, FileMaker Pro 12 will natively convert a .fp7 file to .fmp12 just by going to FILE > OPEN and selecting the .fp7 file. Have you tried it directly with FileMaker Pro 12 client?
I am supposed to get FM12 as an FBA. I only have FMS12 Advance. I being in
Dubai my admin is in France (Paris). I am in touch with her and she will be
If FM12 can transparently convert then the issue is resolved.
"taylorsharpe" is correct - FileMaker Pro 12 (or FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced) will convert your .fp7 files just fine.
The bigger question is why didn't the standalone converter work for you. Did you receive any error message or any indication that there was a problem?
I really appreciate it. I got the FM12ADV from Paris and converting FM11 to
12 is a piece of cake. I already converted my eWorks S (www.eworks4u.com)
to 12. Looks great so far.
Thank you and all the folks in FM. Where are you based. I am in Dubai.

If you have FileMaker Server, you will want to upload the file to the Server and use FileMaker Pro to access the file on the server. Are you familiar with using the Admin Console to upload your database to the server? There are a lot of advantages to using the server including scheduled backups and less chance of corruption if FileMaker Pro crashes. Also, it works best if the FileMaker server is on a Server computer and you run FileMaker Pro from your desktop or laptop.
I have the FMS12ADV. I am just beginning to enjoy it. I setting it up and
you are right about the advantages. Thanks
where do I download this convertor ? Thanks Lee
To download, you need to be a member of FDC at least.
And, the converter is no more useful. You are better to use latest FMP according to that beverly mentioned.
