Summary

Filemaker and Outlook won't run at the same time

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

10

Operating system version

Windows XP

Description of the issue

Filemaker won't start up or crashes shortly after it's loaded when Outlook 2007 is running. If Outlook is closed, Filemaker runs OK. If Filemaker is running, Outlook won't run.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Start Outlook, then start Filemaker.
Start Filemaker, then start Outlook.

Expected result

Outlook runs fine, Filemaker does not.
Filemaker funs fine, Outlook does not.

Actual result

Outlook runs fine, Filemaker does not.
Filemaker funs fine, Outlook does not.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

There are never any error messages, Filemaker just doesn't start at all. If Filemaker does start, it closes within a short time of starting, or it won't print, or it prints part of a report (what happens when it does start with Outlook running seems to change each time - there is no consistancy).

Configuration information

Windows XP
Outlook 2007
FileMaker Pro 10

Workaround
