Runtime Creation Failure

Recommended Posts

I am using FileMaker Pro Advanced 8.5v2 on a Windows XP machine. I have created a file that behaves fine during testing. Then, using 'Developer Utilities', I create a runtime project. When I double-click the EXE file, Windows informs me that the EXE "has encountered a problem and needs to close."

The Project folder is empty when I create the solution. I choose 'Create Runtime solution application(s)' and put in "ClientIntakeSolution" for the 'Runtime Name'" and set the 'Delay' to 2 seconds.

Those are the only changes I make.

I also choose to create an Error Log which is always empty between the 'Log Started' and 'Ending Log' lines.

The USR file has a generic icon and it is identified as a "FileMaker Pro 7 Runtime Database."

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling FileMaker.

Any ideas?

Thank You for your help,

My first instinct would to be to create a new fm file for a test. Make that a runtime and see if it turns out ok.
