Which service pack do you have for XP? FMP12 needs at least service pack 3.
Forgot to add that FMP is a 32-bit application. Even if you're on a 64-bit machine, it runs in 32-bit compatibility mode. This could cause issues with drivers related to ODBC/JDBC (these aren't compatible with 64-bit).
It is service pack 2, but the service packs are different for XP x64 (there is no SP3). Perhaps this is the problem. Though the program does run.
Are you using any plug-ins that may not be compatible?
excellent idea, but no fmp plugins are being used
We're having all sorts of crashing problems on Win XP 32 bit, let alone 64 bit and are just about to commence system level trouble shooting at our customer's. Things seem to be fine on Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit, but completely unreliable on XP. We wonder how much detailed testing software vendors do these days on XP (it was released over 10 years go after all) and we're having to set up a test environment of XP only PCs now as we hardly launch it these days. However, FMI confirm compatibility with XP SP3 in their tech specs so it should work.
We've posted on the FileMaker 'Report an Issue' forum and would ask anyone having XP related problems to do so too. Our post is at http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/97e2493cb8
Our first problem was constant crashing trying to created PDF files with a dli_pdf191.dll faulting module appearing in the Event Viewer. However, since then we've also experience faulting module ntdll.dll on a regular occurrence.
Unfortunately noone has posted any comments to forum posting, but can't believe we're the only people suffering this way.
Are you getting errors reported in the Event Viewer for each crash? Are these consistent?
