Memory leak with FMPro 14?


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows 7 64-bit, 6 GB ram

Description of the issue

I am new to Filemaker, but had been using the 30-day trial without issues.

Today I installed Filemaker Pro 14, which worked fine initially. However, after a while (about an hour of the program being open) my computer became very slow and Filemaker was unresponsive.

After looking at the task manager and opening and closing various problems, it became clear that when Filemaker is open the physical memory usage climbs up until it reaches about 98 percent, at which point the computer becomes nearly unresponsive. When Filemaker is closed, the physical memory usage drops back to normal and the computer starts to respond normally again.

I am new to Filemaker, so I do not know - is this a problem with the new version, or has it been an issue before?

Steps to reproduce the problem

I have reproduced this problem several times today - after about an hour of use, FMPro 14 is using too much RAM and the computer becomes unresponsive.
