Mojave Install Issue

Recommended Posts

I purchased FMP 17 yesterday [11/16] and installed it on my MacBook Pro running Mojave [10.14.1]. It installed OK. The first thing I did was to open an existing solution created in FMP 14 and it worked just fine. I saved a copy as a new FMP 17 solution. When I tried to open either the new FMP 17 version OR the original FMP 14 version, I get an 'unexpectedly quit' error. No matter what I do, I can't seem to re-open any of my solutions.

I've deleted and reinstalled the new FMP 17 app and continue to get the same results.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

After some more testing, I found that if I select 'OPEN', it uses my FMP 14 as the default application. However, even though FMP 14 is still installed on my computer, it still presents the 'unexpected error' message.

If I select FMP 17 to open the solution, everything works fine.

Only versions 16 and 17 will be supported on Mojave. I say "will", because there are currently some issues which are expected to be fixed by the end of this year:

The last Mac OS to support version 14 was El Capitan - that's 3 major versions back:

Unfortunately, FMP has a very poor record of surviving Apple's OS upgrades (I believe things are better for Windows users).

You can change that by doing Get Info on one of your files and selecting Open with: + Change All.
