Adobe FrameMaker 8 is not working on windows 10 OS. Please help us to resolve the issue.
We have already try some setting like compatibility mode but no luck.
You're probably going to have to run it inside a VM that runs an operating system like XP.
Thanks for replay Jeff. Just let us know is any other resolution for solving this issue. Also, can you tell me is FM8 compatible with windows 10 OS?
Not really - FM8 came out eons ago - long before Windows10 was a glimmer in Microsoft's eye, so you can hardly expect it to work. Some people have reported that they've got it running on a Win10 environment, but I suspect that's just luck.
re: You're probably going to have to run it inside a VM that runs an operating system like XP.
And the two challenges there are:
what VM, and
how to get XP license (and install bits)
If one absolutely positively has to run FM8, getting a new machine with downgrade rights to Windows 7 might be a solution (and apparently still available). Then use this hack. Or get a used Sun SPARC workstation, and run the still-supported FM8/Unix on it.
But the real question might be: is it necessary to run FM8? FM8 is on the Unicode site of a major boundary, so using any later FM, and restricting document modifications to FM8-only features, should work. Edit in FM2017, save as MIF2017, open elsewhere in FM8.
A former 'chef' of mine and his wife are still on FM-8 and had to switch to Windows 10. They could manage the situation with the compatibility mode setting for the the executable. Of course the needed to fiddle around somewhat - and it is not absolutely stable, but acceptable for them.
We have no problems whatsoever with FrameMaker 7.2 and Windows 10. We haven't done anything "extra".
See Post#3 - "that's just luck" ;>)
Just for interest, was it a machine that started off with Win10 or was it an older one with FM7.2 on it that was upgraded?
This was a machine with Windows 10 from the start.
