      FileMaker Pro 12 opens fine but once i try to open up a database the program just hangs and becomes unresponsive. No error messages occur and the is no sign of anything happening. The Issue occurs either when I try to open a local database or once I hit the remote button. I have also tried closing the browser and using the menu bar to select open remote only to get the same result.
