      Characters do not show while typing FM11 WinXPP


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Win XPPro SP3

      Description of the issue

      When in Filemaker, typing in a field does not show at all until you tab to another field. Just shows blank, but all characters are there. Editing is terrible with this issue. Solutions tried (and failed to solve the issue) included:

      Updated to latest version of FM11
      Updated all Windows Updates
      Multiple Restarts
      Removed FM11, Reinstalled
      Removed Virus Protection

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Install FMPro 11.0v2 on a Windows XPPro SP3 machine, open a database, go to find mode, click in a field and try to type.

      Expected result

      You should see the letters as you type.

      Actual result

      You do not see anything at all in the field. Tab to the next field and see the data appear.


      Final workaround for now was to DOWNgrade FM to version 10. Our long term solution will be to replace this system with a Windows 7 system.
