General activation error 50018
Description of the issue
Dear friends, I have been running Filemaker Pro v.9 under a Mac Pro, OSX 10.6 for many months without problems. With no apparent cause, when I launch Filemaker Pro I now see a small window "Connected to the activation server", followed by "Waiting for response", followed by "A general activation error has occurred (50018)". It then kills itself. I restarted with no change. I removed a recently installed program (thinking it might have corrupted memory), and restarted with no change. I reinstalled Filemaker Pro from the disc, restarted, and launched Filemaker Pro and get the same behavior. Please help.
