FM Advanced V14 hangs whenever I try open a calculation dialog.  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)

Replace Field Contents when I click the

 

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.  If I don't log off then clicking the FM icon on the taskbar causes it to highlight then slowly fade.  Double-clicking on a file does nothing.

 

SCOPE

FM Pro v13 does not have the symptom on my computer

FM PRO v14 does not have the symptom on other computers

FM Advanced v14 does not have the symptom when running on a Mac

It happensin brand new files with one field, so it is not a corrupt file issue

It happens on databases built in Pro 13 and Advanced 14

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