      Can't open FMP after updating to 8.5v2

      Post

      Yesterday, I updated from FMP 8.5v1 to version 8.5v2 and then found out that now, it's impossible to open FileMakerPro (I am using Mac OS 10.5.6 on my MacPro).

       

      When I try to open FMP 8.5v2, I get the message "You can not open the application FileMakerPro because it is not supported with this architecture" (translated from Norwegian on my Mac).

      I really don't understand why this happened - and what I should do. Purchasing the upgrade to 10.0 is not a preferred solution...

       

      FileMaker Support only redirects me to this forum, so I guess I need some of you to help me.

      Thanks,

      Helge Krabye

          Thank you for your post.

           

          I am running an iMac with 10.5.6.  I just installed FileMaker Pro 8.5v1 and updated to 8.5v2.  FileMaker Pro then launches without a problem.

           

          I switched my operating system to Norge, rebooted, and launched FileMaker Pro 8.5v2 without a problem.

           

          Can you try reinstalling?  Maybe install with an English system, and try it.  If it works, then switch your system back to Norge.
