Is this specific to some versions of FM - Upgrade Adobe FrameMaker?
Can you upgrade from any version of FM to the 2019 version? We have licenses for FM8 and we are looking to upgrade to a more recent version. Also, will FM8 documents be compatible with the new FM versions?
I take care of Framemaker across APAC. May you please share with me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org along with your contact details and best time to connect with you on this.
Hi Atin, our procurement team will get in touch with Adobe.
re: Can you upgrade from any version of FM to the 2019 version?
The latest FM is 2020, but in general, yes.
The FM2019 or 2020 would be a complete separate install, so it does not alter your existing FM version.
re: We have licenses for FM8…
That raises several separate issues:
re: Also, will FM8 documents be compatible with the new FM versions?
Yes. Any version of FM can open the binary (.fm, .book) files of any prior version. You can even port back using MIF.
Thank you - that's helpful information.
We are on Window 10 Enterprise, which I think is compatible with 2020 and 2019.
You are right - I learnt that we have perpetual licenses and will need to purchase a new subscription for the latest FM.

It is. Some attention might need to be paid to 32-bit vs. 64-bit.
