 FM 2.1 Y2K
Can anyone tell me what the Y2K situation is with FileMaker 2.1 which I run on
Win 98?

I won't have any problem using 4 digit years, but I don't know if anything is
going on internally that will make an upgrade a neccessity (one I'd like to
avoid).

The companies web site is somewhat vague on the issue.

Thanks.

You have other issues there...2.1 is NOT 32 bit compliant...I'm
surprised it runs without crashing on Win98.  It's not certified by FM
to run on that OS.  Internally, if you use 4 digit years you should be
ok...but why not upgrade? Wait till after 5 comes out (soon, ok, soon!)
and a copy of 4.1 will be dirt cheap.

Hi Seth F.

2.1 Runs OK on win 98, Win NT, Win 95 and on the Mac too. The upgrade to Version 3.0 v6 or v5 is free for you. I would not wait to Ver 5.0.

Hope this will help.

If you don't like vague, then here is a response that isn't vague:

You have a chance to upgrade for free to the excellent FMPro 3.0. WHAT
ARE YOU WAITING FOR!?!?!?

Seriously, fear not the very stable, and oh-so-more-useful-than-2.0
FMPro 3.0.
