      Summary

      Converting Bento3 to FileMaker12 Causes FileMaker Pro To Crash on OSX 10.9

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12.0v5

      Operating system version

      OSX 10.9

      Description of the issue

      The conversion process starts, and basically creates a clone of the Bento database (meaning that a lot of the schema has been defined, but no data exists in it).  Without any error messages, FileMaker Pro crashes.  No error logs could be found pertaining to FileMaker in "/ Library / Logs / DiagnosticReports/" .

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Make sure Bento is closed
      Open FileMaker Pro's Quick Start
      Pick "Convert an Existing File"
      Change File Type filter to "Bento Source"
      Select the Bento Database
      Pick "Entire Database"
      Hit OK

      Expected result

      Successful conversion, and keep FileMaker Pro open

      Actual result

      FileMaker Pro crashes after creating what is basically a clone of the Bento database.  Schema exists in new file, but no records come over

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      N/A

      Configuration information

      Intel Core i7
      OSX – 10.9 OSX
      8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

      Bento v 3.0.6 (17853)
      12.0v5 FileMaker Pro

      His Bento database is fairly large (I believe it was around 2GB), mostly due to the sheer volume of graphics contained within it.  We need to convert this database into a FileMaker database now that Bento has been discontinued, but are running into a problem with FileMaker crashing when we try to do so.
