Runs fine on OSX but crashes in Windows

Post

I've been working on a database for several months now. I just spent three solid days pushing to the finish line. My database has been working fine in both OSX and XP environments. Today when I finished working on it, I tried running it in my XP environment and when I run certain scripts I get a non-descript, completely useless message that Filemaker Pro must close due to an error. The database works fine in OSX. It won't work on any XP computer. It used to work fine.

 

The two scripts in question do completely different tasks. One redirects to another layout. The other exports records as an Excel file and emails directly from the SMTP server. I did no changes to these scripts in the past few days.

 

Needless to say I am beside myself at the thought of having to redo three days work! The ability to produce databases that will run on either platform is what attracted me to FM in the first place.

 

Has anyone else had cross-platform issues?
