FileMaker Pro 8 crashes at boot on Mac


     On the Internet I found others who have had this problem, but I couldn't find an answer in the replies.

     On a MacBook running 10.6.8, with all software updates installed, FileMaker Pro 8 shows the splash screen and then quits. Yet, in a test user account it boots fine. In the problem user account, booted into Safe Mode, the program won't boot.

     The FileMaker Pro 8 program folder was trashed, then re-nstalled from the install disc, and upgraded to v3, so App files are OK.

     The usual Disk Utility file permissions corrections, PRAM reset, Diskwarrior etc have been run. The FileMaker plist was trashed.

     It obviously is a user related problem because the program boots when logged-into another user.

     Fonts seem OK, Java has been browser disabled, and the latest Java installation done.


     Somewhere there is corruption in the user files... but where???
