Filemaker 9 crashing

Filemaker 9.0 that has been working, without any problems,has begun to crash every time it starts up. This is in a mac G4, 10.4.11 with 2 GB of ram. I loaded a new version & it continues to crash at the same point in its startup.

    Thanks Hawk, I have tossed the application & reinstalled it twice with the disk. The software is registered & payed for. Still fails after attempting to start up. Even after starting up from a disk with a working copy of FM9 it fails at the same point.  
    BTW I was playing with it today & I found that the old filemaker 7 software works fine & opens the newer databases that I have been working on. I was under the impression that that wasn't possible.

Check if you have the appropriate specification to run it; try uninstalling and then reinstalling or running a troubleshooter if you have got the correct specs.

Sometimes software locks up due to not been activated, did you activate the product.

Hope this helps!

I select a game an it just crashed 9/10 timees it crashes


It would be helpful if you could give a little more info than just "I select a game an it just crashed 9/10 timees it crashes"

Ideally what software/hardware you are using, what happens when it crashes like hanging, switching off or freezing. what games you are trying and what platform they are...

you cant honestly expect a resolution without the relevant information. Reply in more detail and i will see what i can do for you.

Deleted/missing client details


Sheldon, The data might really be gone. There are several reasons you might lose data with Filemaker 7 including the file being closed unexpectedly due to power failure, so the application doesn't close the file properly, or the Filemaker application unexpectedly quitting. However, the data might still be recoverable in this scenario. Under the File menu there is a recover command you can try that will create a new "Recovered" file from the current one. Additionally, I strongly recommend you start a daily incremental back up for your FileMaker database files. While corruption issue are rare, accidentally deleting a record, or information in a field, or purposeful sabotage by an unhappy employee is permanent without a backup. Additionally, a back up would provide a solution for recovering the data in the event client data disappears in the future.

I hope I've done a good job answering your question. I am a FileMaker 7 expert (and 8, 9, and 10 as well); if you have any additional questions I will do my best to answer them. If my answer was helpful for you I'd appreciate a 5 thumbs up rating, or a click on the yes this was helpful button. Thank you!

Quark xpress 6.5 crashing


Try updating Quark first and reopen the document, if the problem persists, remove the preference file - this may have become corrupt.
Often a Quark crash is related to corrupt fonts, or fonts sharing the same id number as others already on the machine. Do you use a font manager such as Suitcase?

Apple mac g4 laptop wont come on


Kernel panics are not what you have, you have a flashing question mark, it indicates there is a problem with either the hard drive or the operating system on the hard drive.

Kernel panics are different, the unit tries to start and then the unit crashes with a "kernel panic"

G4 MAC PROBLEM


Hi,

When you ran diagnostics, were you starting up from the AppleCare CD/DVD (or whichever diagnostics disc it was)? If you were and the system didn't crash, that would likely point to a software problem causing your trouble. Have you tried booting up in 'safe mode' by holding down the SHIFT key? That would be my next troubleshooting step. Also, what computer is this?

Computer freezes or crashes


Sounds like you may have some sort of Hardware problem. Possibly the Hard Drive may be bad. Go to Disk Utility in Applications >> Utilities >> Disk Utility  Select your HD in top LH corner of Disk Utility then click Verify Disk 
OS X very seldom crashes or freezes unless it has some sort of Hardware issue.

Always freeze


Firefox will use a lot of disk space over time for temporary use. You might try starting up and run the Disk Utilities program to repair disk permissions.
