    "Updater Doesn't Work! Over priced application"

    December 28, 2010  |   By ilgaar


    This is a great software but...


    The updater doesn't work, it gives an error message telling that it can not find a valid copy of FileMaker Pro, even though I have it installed. Too expensive to buy.


    This a great application and I can do a lot with it, but I never had the chance to buy it, I just tried the trial version, It's way too expensive.

    This is not a problem with the updater, it is a problem with your OSX spotlight index. Your spotlight index is probably damaged. Download Onyx and use it to remove/rebuild your spotlight index and make sure you reboot. This should fix your problem.

    Seriously, you're giving this one star because your attempt to get it for nothing failed?
