Well, the title says it all :-) We're currently using Filemaker pro 16. I have purchased Inspector pro 7, (upgraded from 6 actually). When trying to open it with FM16, I get a message saying it was created with FM17 and cannot be opened. We did not plan to upgrade to FM18 yet. So I'm kind of stuck. Any advice?

    Thanks for contacting us about this. InspectorPro 7 requires FileMaker 17 or 18 to open it (although it can process other .fmp12 DDRs).

    If that is still a problem (and you’re not able to use it yet), please contact our sales team directly via [email blocked] regarding the purchase you already made.
