I'm using the fmdbconverter file to convert my old fp7 files to fmp12 format. I run the following script in Terminal:
~/Documents/Standalone_Converter/fmdbconverter ~/Documents/Standalone_Converter/Databases/colours.fp7 ~/Documents/Standalone_Converter/Converted
The idea being I want it to convert the colours.fp7 file in my 'Databases' folder and create an fmp12 version in my 'Converted' folder. Unfortunately the file it creates in my 'Converted' folder is called colours.fmp and when I try to open in FileMaker 12 it tells me the file needs to be converted to fmp12 format.
It looks as though it has done some of the process but not all. I was under the impression the converter actually converted the file to fmp12 format.
