"FileMaker Pro.exe has encountered a problem..."

Description of the issue

Hi there, I'm running FMPro v. 8.5 on Windows XP v. 2002, service pack 3 and have recently been getting the generic error message "FileMaker Pro.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." I'm trying to import the sorted records (approx 35,000) into a cloned copy of an existing database so that the default order will be the sorted one. I've done this successfully dozens of times before. I was working on a network and though this might be the problem, so I transferred everything to my C:\ drive. No luck. i restarted my computer in case temp files were jamming and tried again, working locally. Nope. I installed the FMP v. 8.5 update, restarted my computer and tried again. Nada. I uninstalled FMP v. 8.5, registered the product, restarted my computer, installed the update and tried again working off of C:\. No such luck. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can fix this problem? Many thanks in advance!
