Filemaker Windows won't open

Hey there.


When trying to print to PDF Filemaker crashed, so I forced quit it. When I tried to open the file directly the filemaker icon appears in the taskbar, but nothing else. I tried logging out and restarting, to know avail.


I figured that it might be a corrupted save, which would be terrible, because this was a new database and I'd done a lot of work. I can open the program to the file open screen, I attempted to open a server database that my whole company uses, but still none of the windows open. I tried creating a new base from scratch. This time the only windows I open are the layout inspector and field selection windows.


The fact that I can't open remote databases, or start new ones makes me think the problem is with the program and not the file. Reinstalling is not really an option now, as I'm on a company machine.


Any ideas?
