Converting .exe to .fmp12

Hi Vince,
In your demo video you mentioned that when viewing a visualization, you could drill down to the actual script/calculation IF you were running from the fmp12 version. I have started using the .exe version. Is there a way to export the data from the .exe version to the .fmp12 version, or would it be best to import the DDRs again into the fmp12 version? Are there any precautions needed when using the fmp12 version vs. the .exe version?
Cheers, Mark

    Silly me - Apparently after registration, the two systems are united. I tried the trail version .exe and then opened the .fmp12 version and none of the trial solutions were there. After registering the product, all data is there. But the second question still exists, any advantage of one version over the other?

    The runtime version allows you to have your actual FileMaker solutions open at the same time but in a separate application. Sometimes this is more convenient.

    Hi Mark,

    Best to run the import once again.

    The benefit you get if you run the application is that you can have them side by side. The drawback is that you don’t have the interactivity .

    But you can always just pop into find mode and performa a find to locate that particular script.
