All of a sudden today Filemaker Pro 12.0.5 won't launch. I click on the application and it bounces once in the dock and then it quits itself an error message pops up that says "Filemaker Pro quit unexpectedly". It then shows a report that can be sent to Apple.


The weird thing is I last launched FileMaker about 2 days ago and it worked perfectly fine. I have not installed any OS updates or Filemaker updates since then. (nothing has changed). I was using the trial version of Filemaker 14 today but I have been able to open version 12 after I installed the trial of 14 and have used them interchangeably. (and no its not a problem of trying opening a new fmp.14 file in version 12.)


I've tried the normal rebooting the computer, etc and nothing has worked. I'm running Mac OS X 10.11.3.


Here's part of the error message I get:

Any ideas what might be causing this issue?
