After I open an application and done some work, I will perform an action such as changing the layout, FileMaker will disappear.

Nothing happens when I reload FileMaker.


I’m running Windows 8.1 and FileMaker Pro Advanced 13.0v4 but this also happened in 13.0v2.


Task Manager shows FileMaker running only as a background process, NOT displayed in the currently running Apps.

The only way I can get back into it is to End Task –FileMaker, then I can open FileMaker normally.


This has happened several times in several applications.
