I am having startup issues with FMP15Adv even after 2nd fresh download of installer.


MacBook Pro 15" 2.5 i7, 16gb RAM, 300gb available on 500gb drive, Sierra v10.12.4


Starting FMPro Adv 12: six seconds to open application only

Starting FMPro Adv 13: three seconds to open application only

Starting FMPro Adv 15.03.305: fifty to seventy-five seconds to open application only


No, I don't have any other apps opened.

No. I don't have the server installed on this system.

Yes. My network is healthy and running as fast as I can afford it to.

Yes. I rebooted.


Dragging file and dropping on unstarted app icon yields same s-l-o-w results for ver 15. Other versions working fine.

Once FMPro Adv 15 is open it functions equally as fast as previous versions.


The problem is only happening on startup of the application and has nothing to do with my previous files or templates.


I'm a 27-year Mac veteran in a corporate tech support position and I've used FileMaker since version 3.0 - I've never had a startup problem like this.


Anyone have any legit suggestions?
