An application hang occured on shutdown & Database is now corrupted.


FileMaker Pro


Operating system version

Windows XP SP3

Description of the issue

The fileMaker Pro app resides on a PC, but the database resides on a file server. When the App was being shut down at the end of the day it became hung, but there was no notification at the time. The next morning the user reported that when the database was opened, there was a database corruption message.

Upon investigation, the following Event Viewer entry was recorded: Hanging application FileMaker Pro.exe, version, hang module hungapp, version hang address 0x00000000

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

"Database name.fp7" is damaged and cannot be opened. Use the Recover command to recover this file.


I was able to use the Recover command to recover the file. A similar issue occurred with our previous version, but the recovery was not completely successful.
