               Thank you for the post.


               I do not receive any errors when opening FileMaker Pro 12.0v4 on Windows 8. Either the FileMaker installation or the Microsoft Visual C++ installation may be corrupted.  


               Uninstall FileMaker Pro 12 and all versions of Microsoft Visual C++ from Add/Remove. Afterwards, reinstall FileMaker Pro from the latest version of the full installer located here:


          Software Update: FileMaker Pro 12.0v4 and FileMaker Pro 12.0v4 Advanced release notes


               The Microsoft Visual C++ required by FileMaker Pro 12 will reinstall during the installation. Please keep me updated with any progress and report back with the results.
