Emulation
This app works with: Basilisk II,

FileMaker Pro 2.1 is a 1992 Multi-platform (Macintosh and Windows) database application from Claris Corporation, a subsidiary of Apple Inc.. It evolved from a DOS application, but was then developed primarily for the Macintosh. This is the desktop version only (later versions add server, web, and iOS configurations).

FileMaker Pro 2.1 integrates a database engine with a GUI-based interface, allowing users to modify the database by dragging new elements into layouts, screens, or forms. Except for few platform-specific functionalities, the program's features and user interface were the same on both platforms. Version 3.0, released around 1995, introduced new relational and scripting features.

NOTE: The source of the FMP images (DC 4.2) is a direct copy from a CD provided to me while I attended a University circa 1995, therefore the images were not made from original disks in my possession.

If I read someone has put up a disc image or disk images, I'll thank them for their effort even if I own the original media. Then a year later I'll read that it wasn't a real disc image, but one the contributor put together for uploading. Still, their heart is in the right place. But I could have put up the real thing 12 months earlier. This goes for warez disk images too, if it's a pirate copy, say it is.

I don't have all the original media, and if I upload something that's not I'll make it expressly clear in the description. Even if it's come from an official release on a magazine cover cd.

And we don't want contributors making Disk Copy disk images from something other than the original disks.

Sure? I would vote to disk image all of the stuff, simply to get it easier into today's Mac emulators
(putting particular files into emulators isn't so easy)...

@bertyboy:

Great addition. If I could find my FMP3 CD we'd be laughing.

In my neck of the woods, Claris 1st released version 3 on floppy disk because the program was ready before the CD contents were finalized and they were in a rush to get ver. 3 out (already 2 years behind schedule). What we got here was the US version of FileMaker Pro 3 on floppy disk. Then about a month or so later Claris released the CD containing the extra template and example files (+ usual Claris demo programs) on a CD to themselves (sans FM Pro 3).

I have that original floppy installer set... I can put it up soon...

@Vitoarc:

If this was from a CD, it's fine as-is. Images will just confuse people.

Sorry for the confusion Tongue next time note the source in the description.

Well now that everyone knows, I'll just make some 4.2 images and reload then

There's nothing misleading about disk images in and of themselves; they're much easier to open and use across machines and operating systems.

I copied FMP directly from a CD that was given to me back in college, from the University. I bought and paid for this with my tuition. Why should I make an image of something if I don't have to? bertyboy is correct, I do not have the original disks, so I didn't want to be misleading.

I can't find my FMP v3 CD. Or the backup copy, or the Toast I made of it, it may be on a Zip disk, or on a compilation backup CD I may have burned years ago. Annoying.
But I did find a copy of FileMaker Pro v1, the floppy images for FileMaker Pro v3 (a warez version I obtained as it also has FileMaker Server v3), and FileMaker II - the first version developed by Claris, about 4 versions before this one. I've also got the 40MB FileMaker Pro v3 CD Extras from a couple of MacFormat cover CDs - this turns the floppy disk installation into the CD installation.
More hunting tomorrow.

Ahhh. makes sense Smile

I'm guessing because it's a warez version, and this is the format it came in. And we don't want contributors making Disk Copy disk images from something other than the original disks.

Why isn't this in Disk Copy 4.2 format? That would be ideal Smile

Thanks!

I can't remember something like iOS in 1992.

But this version (probably 3.0, too) is a version easy to use, other than later versions.
