Q: The exercise files for this course do not work on a Mac. It downloads executable files. Can you provide a workaround?

A: The files provided for this course were made pre-FileMaker Pro 12. The system does not recognize the .fp7 files immediately as something that can be opened with FileMaker Pro 12 and instead shows them as Unix Executable Files.

The solution is quite simple. Just double-click the file, at which point the Mac will prompt you to choose an application to open the
file with. Select FileMaker Pro 12 and it will then convert the file from a .fp7 file into the new FileMaker Pro 12 file format, which is .fmp12.

Q: This course was updated on 5/12/2015. What changed?

A: We moved a video from the "Using Relationships" chapter of FileMaker Pro 13 Essential Training into this course, where it will remain evergreen.
