8.5 freezes when opening remote

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, this is first time I've actaully posted anything here.

Strange problem here where FM crashes on attempting to start opening a remote file.

I have computer A set up FM 8 (not server) hosting a simple file, open and fm network settings 'on'.

I have computer B using FM 8.5 advanced attempting to open the file.

Every time I click the 'remote' button, or go file/open remote the programme feezes before dialogue box even opens.

Everything else appers fine. The link between the two computers is fine. I can open the file OK using FM7 instead of FM8.5 advanced (otherwise same setup).

I have reinstalled 8.5 advanced to no avail.

Mac 0S 10.4.9 on both machines.

I'm stumped!

Did 8.5 Advanced come with a developer license for FM Server? If it did, install Server and do some testing.

You might try dumping the FileMaker Pro 8.5A Prefs file.
