Filemaker database runtime applications are usually pretty stable. That is until something weird happens – a power outage, a full moon, the Browns win the Super Bowl – and then you have problems. We don’t like problems any more than you do. Here is a tip that will save you some headaches – make a backup of the program. Here’s how.
First install the program, enter your product key, make sure it is running as it is supposed to. Next, do the following:
Make sure the program is closed – don’t ever make a copy of an open application.
Locate the program:
• On Macs it is a single file in the Applications folder called QuoteMagician
• On PC’s it is a folder on your desktop called QuoteMagician
Make a copy of the file or folder noted above. When the copy is made save it someplace safe. Then, if you ever have a problem you can trash the old copy, move the new copy into place and keep going like nothing happened.
And if you forget to make a backup copy, and you encounter a problem, all you need to do is reinstall the application and enter your product key once again. It’s a hassle and isn’t a lot of fun, so be sure to backup your program.
