    Brand New User Issue with Starter Solutions



      Brand New User Issue with Starter Solutions


      I just downloaded a 30 day trial of Filer Maker on my Mac Powerbook G4 (believe it or not).

      when I open Try Starter Solution from the Quick Start screen it launches the Starter Solutions dialog box and that box is completely empty with no templates, no nothing. does this mean I need to reinstall FM? 


      also, from the Quick Start box, i choose Hands On Tutorial - Start Now, I get a message Some of the files required to complete this action cannot be found. Please reinstall to restore any missing files. 


      What gives??

          It means that not all of the needed files were successfully installed on your computer--including the tutorial and the starter solution templates. Re-installing is definitely something to try, but you may have trouble here as you can only install a 30 day trial once on a given computer. You may need to contact Filemaker Tech Support to see if they have a solution for that issue so that you can get a free trial working on your machine.
