    FM 14 freezes when creating calculations but 13 does not

    mitc0186

      FM Advanced V14 freezes whenever I try to do a calculation.  I can open Pro V13 and perform the same tasks without problems.  Reinstalling didn't help.  Any ideas for me to try?

       

      CAUSES

      Adding calculated fields to a table (after setting field type, before Create)

      Adding calculated auto-entry fields to a table (When I click the Calculated value box)

      Script Set Field step when I click on Calculated result (before I enter anything)

       

      SYMPTOMS

      The program freezes and I use Task manager to end task. 

      If I was working on a script FM gives me a warning about unsaved script but I can't go back to save it, I still need to end task.

      Sometimes I need to log off to reopen 14.  Clicking the icon on the taskbar causes it to highlight then slowly fade.  Double-clicking on a file does nothing.

       

      SCOPE

      It happens on databases built in Pro 13 and Advanced 14

      It happens on server-hosted files and ones on my desktop

      Another Windows user experiences freezes executing scripts in V14 but not V13

      A Mac user freezes every few minutes in Pro 14 and Pro 13, but that may be caused by PDF problems.
