Windows 7 32-bit or Windows 7 64-bit and FileMaker Pro 9
Posted on 2010-11-29
I am buying a new computer which will have windows 7 Home Premium installed on it. Im not sure of which version it will have yet. When I contacted FileMaker customer support they told me that 9 would not run on either version and I should upgrade to FileMaker 11 which would run on the 32-bit version. Then I read that if I upgraded to Windows 7 Professional I would be able to run a virtual XP system on the computer. When I asked FM customer support about that, they said that it wouldn't work on that part of the OS.
I hope this doesn't sound really lame, but I don't know what to do or who to believe. I know there have been some questions about this in the past, but I would like to know if anyone has used FM9 and if it worked on either system and if they had the Home version of Windows 7 or the Profession version.
