      Filemaker Pro 7v3 Blue Screens on Mac

      Description of the issue

      Performing a find function causes my mac to blue screen, closing all applications and taking me to the desktop. This only occurs in filemaker. I am running Mac OX10.5.6

          Thank you for your post.

           

          Unfortunately, FileMaker Pro 8.5 is the earliest version of FileMaker Pro that is certified to run on Leopard (10.5.x).  However, I do have a copy of FileMaker Pro 6 on my machine to test out old files, and I'm able to perform a find without a problem.

           

          If you have access to another computer, install FileMaker Pro 7 on that computer, create a simple database file and execute a find.  If this works, then there may be something wrong with your file.

           

          On your original machine, is the Find problem occurring with a specific file or all files?  If just a specific file, then I would run the Recover command (File menu) and when finished, open the recovered file and try Find again.

           

          Please keep me posted to your progress.
