I have tried to install FM 5 Pro on a new PC running Windows NT 4.
Installation was OK, but when I try to start FM, I receive the
following error message:
"FileMaker Pro could not be launched because of incorrect
installation, missing system components or insufficient memory. Please
see the FileMaker Pro documentation."
After several trials I installed FM on two other PC:s, and they worked
flawlessly. The other PC:s had same OS, but different service packs
(SP 5) and other software (MS Office 97).
I have tried to get information from www.filemaker.com and other
websites, but found nothing relevant. The (paper) manuals were
nonsense and help files not much better. While browsing the files
under folder ...winnt\system32 and comparing them to list in the
manual, I found several files missing (mainly ODBC-related). Also
missing were msdaerr.dll and msdatl.dll from folder C:\program
files\common files\system\ole db. Could this be fatal to FM? Why
didn't the installation copy these files to their proper folders (or
is the manual wrong/outdated)?
What is the problem and how could I fix it?
OS: Windows NT 4.0 (build 1381, Service pack 6, RC 1.3)
PC: Pentium III 650 MHz, 132 MB RAM, Matrox G400 AGP 16 MB
MS Office 2000 (9.0.3821 SR-1)
MS IE 5 (5.00.2919.6307)
plus other less-relevant programs (WinZip, ArcServe Backup etc).
