Thank you for your post.
FileMaker Pro 9 has not been certified nor tested with Windows 7. There have been some reported issues with FileMaker Pro 10 and Windows 7 and can be found in Knowledge Base Article #7453:
Ref: Running Filemaker Pro 9 Advanced on Windows 7 machine.
Thank you for your reply. A few days ago I ran my executable on a laptop
that had 64-bit Windows 7 operating system. It seemed to work OK but
after reading your reference perhaps I had better not get Windows 7
on my new computer.
If you hear any more about this issue, please let me know.
