I'm the volunteer administrator of my church network (and also the
database support guy).
We have a half dozen Macs of various vintages using FM Pro 3.0 (With
the data files on a local Mac G3 server), and the church staff would
like to add a few windows PCs (on this network) to have access to the
A few questions:
1) I've read that FM Pro 3 & 4 use the same file format (of course i
have to rename all my macintosh files to 8.3, right?) So I believe I
can use windows version 3.x or 4.x to read this Mac developed/hosted FM
Pro 3 database.
2) Is there a demo/trial version of FM Pro 4.1 for windows anywhere?
(I already checked on www.filemaker.com) I'd like to see what kind of
display issues we might have before we pay for the windows software.
3) Any leads on good place to find a good price for the software?
(CompUSA in my area has 4.1 for $199)
4) Has anyone tried trading in a mac license for a windows one? (I
think we have more mac licenses than we need)
