I installed the 64 bit version of FMP14A on my Windows 8.1 machine earlier this week and I have not been able to successfully create a new database file with it. I can edit existing files but I cannot create a new file. As soon as I press the NEW SOLUTION button, Filemaker crashes.
Here's the install procedure I used:
Uninstalled the pre-release version of FMP14A.
Uninstalled FMP11A because I don't need it anymore.
Left FMP13A installed.
Rebooted the machine.
Installed FMP14A (64 bit)
As I said, it seems to open existing files no problem but it crashes every time when creating a new database.
I have disabled anti-virus (ESET) but that has had no effect.
I won't be deploying 14 for a couple of months and the 32 bit version seems to be fine so it's not a big problem right now but I just thought I would put this out there in case anybody else is having the same trouble.
