    Filemaker REALLY slow to open on new iMac



      Filemaker REALLY slow to open on new iMac


      FileMaker Pro


      filemaker 11

      Operating system version

      OS 10.6.4

      Description of the issue

      I used filemaker7 with a commercial program. It worked fine. Then, I upgraded my computer and also upgraded to filemaker 11, ( the software maker upgraded their FM database to run on FM11)  and even before I use their database, FM takes forever to open. I am talking at least a minute, far longer than FM7 used to take.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Every time I start up FM11, it takes an inordinate amount of time.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      No error message.

          Thank you for your post.

          Are you launching FileMaker Pro 11?  Or, are you double-clicking on the database file that launches Filemaker Pro 11?  If the latter, see if there is a Startup script, or if the file is referencing other database files.

          What other applications are running on the computer?  Do you have access to another machine?  If so, can you install and launch FileMaker Pro and see if the launch time is the same?
