Unable to open FM11 files in FM12 trial version

Jan 24, 2014 8:39 AM

Hi

 

I have downloaded the TCS 5 trial verison for evaluation purpose. i am trying to open my existing FM11 files in FM12 but it gets to "Not Responding" mode.

 

The FM11 doc has plain text in various formats and nothing fancy.

 

Can somebody please help?

 

Thanks in advance.

    I've been using 12 for a year or so and never had that problem.

     

    Did you reboot after the installation? Are you using File > Open within

    Frame? Did you run the trial install as an Administrator so your

    permissions are set properly?

    Have you tried to drag&drop a file from Explorer to the open FM 12 window?

     

    Can you open any of the sample FM12 included with the installation without any issues?

    Ttry saving the FM11 file as MIF from your FM11 installation and see if that opens. If it still fails, then there's something messed up with your installation, permissions or policies.

     

    Like Art mentions, I've been using FM12 from the start of the pre-release and I've opened files back to FM4 without any issues.

    Do you have both Frame installs on the same system? Probably not supported.

    ..

     

    Can you save an 11 file as MIF and open in 12?

    Art, I've got FM6 to FM12 on the same machine with no side-effects or inteference.

    What are your system specs? RAM. OS, file storage location, etc.

    No idea of the specifics of it, but you should put a bug in about this to let Adobe see if they can figure out what’s interfering between the two programs.

    And, just on a hunch.... Maybe go into your Windows settings and take a

    look at the file extension / application links for .FM .

    Lotus uses a number of them in the format .FMX, where X is some other

    character. Possibly there's something amiss there.
