Do you get an error message or does the database just fail to open?
Do you see the same behavior if you have several other applications open at the same time and then try to launch FileMaker?
First I would like to thank you for replying the last time I posted this. I reposted because I felt I did not put a proper header on it.
Your thought was to re-install Filemaker which I have not yet tried, thought I would see what other thoughts might come my way.
As to your questions.
I get no error messages, when Elements is open and I try to open Filemaker, it will attempt to start up and then close down.
The only other program open is either Internet Explorer or Firefox.
And if you have a web browser open with a lot of tabs in the browser, can you then open and use FileMaker without issue?
No FP problems when the browser is open as long as Elements is closed and I don't try to open a PDF.
