Product and version (e.g. FileMaker Pro 14.0.3): FMPAdv 17

OS and version: Windows 10 (latest)

Browser and version (for WebDirect only)

Hardware PC Intel i7 / 16MB RAM / several TB disk space

Description When FMP closes, it often leaves open the FMP process disallowing FMP to be relaunched.

How to replicate

Workaround (if any) Open task manager, stop FMP process, launch FMP from dsktop


This problem began in v16. I assumed, wrongly, that this was known and would go away in 17. Apparently I was wrong.

Problem is inconsistent and usually happens after the second instantiation of FMPAdv.
