    FileMaker hangs after opening a DB


      Hi there,


      Not sure if I'm at the right place here calling for help with an issue. But I'd like to give it a try.


      Our systems are all Windows 7- 64 Bit, fully installed with latest Windows security updates.


      We have a database which can be used by several users at the same time. They can access the DB directly from the Desktop by clicking on the shortcut or through our remote desktop site when they want to work at home or abroad. The same Windows profile is being loaded when logging in locally on a desktop machine or when logging in the Remote Desktop. Remote Desktop gives access to the same work space as on a Desktop, the difference is that the work space is on a virtual machine.


      Now we have one user who wants to work in the FileMaker DB from her office work space. FileMaker loads in and additionally opens the DB. It shows all the tabs and entries. But when she clicks on one of the tabs, FileMaker hangs and shuts down. Normally, at this point we should see the coffeecup noticing us please wait a second.

      I've let her access the DB through the Remote Desktop option and when her Desktop appears and she doubleclicks the FileMaker Database...it starts up and let's her access all the tabs without any problems!


      If we ask another colleague to log on to the same machine this person can access the DB without any problems!

      So there must something wrong with the local Desktop machine. And it should be in her profile.

      So I've deleted the FileMaker folder under C:\<username>\AppData\Local and Roaming. Started the Database again but nope, still the same problem.


      Event Viewer shows 3 entries that go with this application hang:

      I'm wondering if anyone has seen this issue before and perhaps has some kind of clue and can give me a direction where to look at/for.

          Thank you for your post!


          It looks like you are still on FileMaker Pro 14.0.1. You might start by following these steps:

          1. Uninstall FileMaker Pro

          2. Remove the FileMaker Folders located at:



          3.Launch regedit and delete this location (if it exists), then reinstall.

               /HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/FileMaker/FileMaker Pro/14.0A

          4. Install FileMaker Pro 14.0.6 (Can download from your Software Download Page)


          I'm going to move this thread from the FileMaker Community Feedback Space (which is specifically for input on the Community itself) to the Discussions Space where you should receive more views and potentially more feedback on this topic!
