I downloaded the FM Server 12 trial version. I am having issues accessing the admin console. I keep getting an error message" Application Error. Unable to launch the application."

Based on what I search it seems that it might be related to the browser version. I have windows 8 (64-bit) and I am currently using IE10. I have downloaded the latest version of Java.

Most issues with launching the FileMaker Server Admin Console in version 7-12 are related to the wrong version of Java being installed. FMS 12 is a little more tolerant of different Java versions but the best way to handle it in my experience is as follows:

1. Uninstall ALL version of Java
2. Uninstall FileMaker Server
3. Restart your computer
4. Re-install FileMaker Server allowing it to install Java for you
5. Turn OFF auto-updates for Java

FileMaker Server 13 has a completely rebuilt Admin Console built in HTML5 which should stop the repeated experience users have had over the years of a new Java update breaking the Java-based Admin Console app. You should also be able to download a Trial version of FMS 13 rather than 12. Note that the way files get uploaded to FMS Server has changed.

You should also install the latest FM Server update. Updates are very important and sometimes include an updated version of Java.
