Description of the issue
Today out of nowhere when I tried to open FileMaker Pro 9 it triggered some activation routine for which it could not receive a response from the web (yes, I am running a properly registered copy of the program with a fully functional internet connection). When the program decided to give up trying, it gave me the following error message: "A general activation error has occurred (50040)" and then exited the program without ever having fully opened it. Please note that I properly registered my product and have been running it without incident on my mac at work for nearly a year. Any idea what this is about? A prompt response would be appreciated since I have work to do on my database today!
