Whenever I am debugging a script and I have the Data Viewer open the Program becomes unresponsive. As soon as I close the Data Viewer the problem goes away. Is anyone else having this issue. My client is installed on Window 7 x64
Im running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with FMPA12 and have not experienced this.
I've seen this issue during windowing operations in FMPA 11. What exactly is going on in the script when the program freezes?
They are fairly large scripts. It happens when first opening the script in the debugger. If I try and parse through the script or if I run the script this happens. It is not a specific script step or function.

Hm. Well, in that case, no, haven't seen it. Sorry.
This has been mentioned in the FMPA Slow discussion thread. So far I haven't run into it on a Mac Book Pro 2.8 GHz Core 2 Duo with 8 Gbyte ram.
Do you have a link to that thread Bruce? Thanks for your help.
Here is the link. It is a long thread.
I wonder if this might be unrelated to whether it is FM 11 or 12, but rather a matter of what you have in your Data Viewer. Are you on the "Watch" tab and, if so, are there any calcs in there that might be taking a lot of time to resolve eachtime the record or context changes? Or maybe a plugin call that takes some time?
Also beware of showing any data in the viewer which is not context related from the table you are working from while you are debugging. FileMaker will try to evaluate the data even if it has to lookup 7 tables deep, and can cause the issues you describe. I know this for a fact because the people who work around me get a four letter alert every time I accidentally forget to remove an entry from my data viewer that is not directly related ("f$ck , not again!"). It's a real "gotcha" in FM12. Sometimes when it happens , I end up terminating FileMaker and just start it up again as it's quicker than waiting for fm to evaluate the offending data.
Hope this helps.
There's a thread on FMForums discussing the same issue. http://fmforums.com/forum/topic/83817-benchmarking-fm12-and-fm11/
