FileMaker Pro 8.5 crashing on Snow Leopard
I am using Snow Leopard on mac intel and I can't open my my FileMaker Pro v 8.5.
It keeps crashing everytime I try to open my database.
Can anyone let me know why?
Some people have problems with their databases in Snow Leopard.
Filemaker does not support the combination.
Does Filemaker crash on opening or when you open your database?
Can you make a new database with some fields, and reopen it?
Download the FM ver10 trial and test the database.
Thank you so much for your response.
I can not open any existing or new files - crashes as soon as I open anything.
I will try the V10 trial and fingers crossed it works.
Thank you for your posts.
I have installed FileMaker Pro 8.5 on a Snow Leopard machine, and it appears to work fine. I am able to open files, run finds and sorts, etc. There are some printing issues that are documented at:
If you updated to Snow Leopard after FileMaker Pro 8.5 was already installed, then I would uninstall and reinstall FileMaker Pro 8.5.
I had exactly the same problem as you, ie Filemaker closed down whenever I tried to open any file (Filemaker 8.5, Snow Leopard). Happily, I've found a solution!
I was using Filemaker 8.5.0. By uploading to Filemaker 8.5v2, it solved the problem. I can now open files and work normally.
The download is here:
Hope this helps!
