FM Pro Adv 11 Crash/Quit Problem. Using Intel Mac w/10.6.6
Been using FM Pro Adv for several years. Starting having problems when I upgraded to FM 11 last year and also upgraded to Snow Leopard. The first event occurred while entering data... FM appeared to hang for a moment and then quit. I recovered the file with no errors detected and had the same problem. It does not seem to be tied to one field being entered or a particular form (except that it is always an entry form).
I stumbled along with recovering the DB for awhile and then I went back to an older back-up copy (from a problem free time) and updated it. At the same time I reinstalled FM Pro Adv 11 from disk.
Machine is an 2009 Intel iMac with 2 GB of memory. I've allocated the maximum (256 MB) for FM. Disk overhead is not a problem as I'm only using about 35% of capacity. I run permission repair every time I add software... No problems detected.
Any advice or help would be appreciated.
Snow Leopard upgrades have been known to have issues with fonts/font suitcases that did not create issues with Leopard. There was a rash of these issues reported when snow Leopard was first released. You might research that issue by searching this web site and Apple's support site to learn more. (I'm not a mac user at this time, I'm just reporting what I've read here.)
