A year and half ago I wrote a Medications List solution in FM Pro 11 and generated a runtime version via Developer Utilities. It's been working fine for them (with occasional crashes that seemed to be machine rather than solution related.)
The user just updated their Mac OS to Lion and reports increased pinwheel spinning and crashing. Is anyone else experiencing this as an issue? Please confirm FM11 stand-alone (runtime) solutions "should" run okay in Lion.
Runtime solutions work without any issues in any OS X prior to 10.7.3. Verify that this is not related to the hard drive or permissions with OnyX. OnyX is a popular free utility that will repair permissions and empty system caches etc. : http://www.titanium.free.fr/download.php. Your runtime solution may have been corrupted due to prior crashes.
