FileMaker Pro 8.5v2 Update fixes major Leopard compatibility issues
FileMaker has released a downloadable update to fix important compatibility
issues in FileMaker Pro 8.5 and FileMaker Pro 8.5 Advanced running on Mac
OS X Leopard.
The v2 update fixes issues that caused FileMaker Pro 8.5 to hang when the
system language and region did not match, and when saving to or exporting
to Microsoft Excel format.
Note that the Instant Web Publishing (IWP) feature does not work in
FileMaker Pro 8.5v2 or FileMaker Pro 8.5v2 Advanced running on Mac OS X
Leopard. The IWP feature in FileMaker Pro 8.5 was designed and implemented
long before Leopard, and it is not feasible to update it for Leopard.
We hope the v2 update helps customers make a smoother transition to
FileMaker Pro 9. Please note there may be other issues with FileMaker Pro
8.5 and FileMaker Pro 8.5 Advanced running on Leopard. We urge our
customers to use the current versions of all FileMaker software.
