          No way for me to tell from that screen shot. I can tell you that we are using 10.03 on numerous fully updated XP computers here on a daily basis without trouble. This screenshot might tell a FileMaker tech something, but there are some tests you can run to try to figure this out while you wait for a response.

          Is the file hosted from another computer? If so does that computer host it with FileMaker or FileMaker Server?

          Do you get this crash only from a specific file? If you don't know, create a small file put it on the same computer and test it to see if you get the same problem. If the test file opens without issue, then your file may be damaged. Run a recover on the file.

          1. Take it down off the server if you are hosting with FileMaker server (you can use a back up copy for this instead of taking it down off the server).
          2. Launch FileMaker without opening the file and select recover from the file menu.


          Things to keep in mind about Recover:

          1. Recover does not detect all problems
          2. Recover doesn't always fix all problems correctly
          3. Best Practice is to never put a recovered copy back into regular use or development. Instead, replace the damaged file with an undamaged back up copy if this is at all possible. You may have to save a clone of the back up copy and import all data from your recovered copy to get a working copy with the most up to date information possible.
