    random crashing FM13 client using streamtime Mac


      Hi FileMaker experts!


      I'm having a tricky problem at work, a client of mine is getting random crashing within FM13 client on an iMac OS10.11.4. The company is setup with an SOE for the OS.
      Only one person is having the issue on one Mac. the user account can be logged into Streamtime via FileMaker client from another Mac and use the database fine, making changes etc.


      Crashing occurs at random times and from what I can see can't be reproduced on demand.


      I'm pretty good with the ol'OSX. But have very little experience troubleshooting FM issues. I have googled until I can't google no more.


      I've found that one of the aftermarket memory modules from OWC(low voltage) was bad via component isolation tests and using built in AHT.

      Unfortunately I don't have the iMac specs to hand. But its fairly new 2015 model 27". Had maxed out RAM.


      FM13 client has been uninstalled/reinstalled.

      The com.filemaker.client.pro12 file comes up on the crash report a couple time, it has been deleted and rebuild when opening FM13 client(deleted from user library). issue persists.


      I've attached some Crash reports for your perusal.


      Any suggestions or help would be immensely appreciated.

          Just wondering if there are specific cache files that could be removed or other tests to perform.
          Mac also has Adobe CC for Teams. Could fonts be an issue? User reports no new fonts installed. But could there be fonts Adobe are pushing that have an adverse affect on streamtime.

          • 2. Re: random crashing FM13 client using streamtime Mac

            Start with the usual FMP troubleshooting:

            1) Delete the FMP preferences

            2) Re-install FMP and patch to latest version

            3) Update all FM plug-ins

            4) Remove all plug-ins and return them one-by-one

            After that, look for problems with the computer itself:


            1) Peform a disk repair

            2) Update the OS

            3) Create a new, clean user account on the same machine and test FMP with this

            4) Re-install OS

            5) Put them on a different machine


            After that, look at the network, cables, switches, etc. If they use WiFi then turn it off on their machine and get them an ethernet connection.

            • 3. Re: random crashing FM13 client using streamtime Mac

              Clone the OSX from a working Mac onto an external drive with SuperDuper.

              Boot the problem Mac with this clone and test.

              OR move the problem Mac near a working Mac.

              Start working Mac in Target Mode, connect with a firewire or thunderbolt cable and boot problem Mac with working Mac HD.

              This will eliminate half of the variables.

              • 4. Re: random crashing FM13 client using streamtime Mac

                Thanks for the suggestions. I've already performed some of this in my initial diagnostic. But some very valid points.

                1) Delete the FMP preferences

                The plist in ~/Library/Preferences called 'com.filemaker.client.pro12' has been deleted and rebuilt. issue remains.

                2) Re-install FMP and patch to latest version

                I'm pretty sure its now on the latest version as these crash reports are some of the first sent in by the client.

                Will need to double check this, as colleague did the re-install.

                3) Update all FM plug-ins

                Need to check this. Is stream time a plugin? forgive my ignorince.

                4) Remove all plug-ins and return them one-by-one


                1) Peform a disk repair

                Was done initially, after the dodgy OWC RAM was found/removed. Issue remains.

                2) Update the OS

                Was updated to 10.11.4 issue remains.

                3) Create a new, clean user account on the same machine and test FMP with this

                Although I tested users account in streamtime on another Mac(and working fine) good point. Can check with new user. Clients setup is SOE with mobile/bound accounts to OD.

                4) Re-install OS

                Drastic measure. Hope it doesn't come to this.

                5) Put them on a different machine

                Was done in initial testing, and working fine.

                • 5. Re: random crashing FM13 client using streamtime Mac

                  OWC RAM removed and OEM RAM reinstalled.

                  This I believe was the issue.

                  The weird thing was built in AHT and 3rd party Rember.app didn't flag any issues.


                  DiskWarrior repair was run after OEM RAM reinstalled.

                  Have also disabled App Nap for good measure incase that was doing something silly to the network connection over to the database.(all wired connections at office)


                  Thanks for all the suggestions.
