File won't open in FMPro 9

I am trying to open a file that was created in FMPro 8. After entering my username and password I get an pop-up window with the title "FileMaker 8 Required..." and the message "This template includes features that only work correctly with FileMaker Pro 8." The only option is a "close" button. When clicked the computer completely exits FileMaker Pro.

I have access to FMPro 8 that I can use to edit the file but how do I know which elements are not compatible with FMPro 9?

Thanks!

It sounds like your opening script is checking the application version and looking for version 8. If you have full access to the file, try changing the If[] condition in the opening script. Look for something like:

If [ get(applicationversion) = 8 ]

Show Custom Dialog [ "This template includes features that only work correctly with FileMaker Pro 8." ]

Exit Application

End If

and maybe change it to:

If [ get(applicationversion) < 8 ]

Show Custom Dialog [ "This template includes features that only work correctly with FileMaker Pro 8 or later." ]

Exit Application

End If

You may need to open the file with version 8 so you can get into ScriptMaker (if you can't cancel the startup script using command-period).

Thanks Ender. Here is the open script:

----

Go to Layout ["Welcome"]

Show/Hide Status Area [Lock; Hide]

Show/Hide Text Ruler [Hide]

Set Zoom Level [100%]

Select Window [Current Window]

Adjust Window [Resize to Fit]

Open File ["Music Video Library"] (I verified that the file path is correct)

If [Get ( ActiveModifierKeys ) = 4]

Else

Close File [Current File]

End If

------

I tried disabling the If...End If steps but still got the error message.

Maybe it's in the startup script for the Music Video Library file.

You were right. I found the offending steps in the Open script for the Music Video Library file. I disabled the steps and everything is working like a champ!

Thanks to everyone for the tips. Reed, I didn't need to use debugger because I used my home computer with 8.5. Next time I will definitely try that first before posting.

Cheers,

Gideon
