FMP 9 Crash & other issues

Hi all,

I am having a few problems with FMP 9 and I’m hoping someone can shed some light on them.

First some info about the solution I we are using: there is a ‘Navigate’ file on each local machine that points to the ‘Login’ file on the server. From the ‘Login’ file the user can access any other file stored on the server.

I installed FMP 9 on a Windows XP machine and when I tried to launch ‘Navigate’ it told me I had to recover the file. I did this and it worked. I’m not worried about recovering this file because it is literally just a pointer script and 6 fields with one record. All seem to be intact.

The Windows PC then opened ‘Login’ and all other files correctly.

Problem 1: I have a layout with 3 portals. One of them should always show a sub-set of records. The other two are based on relations that are based on globals, which fill with records when the globals are set.

All records are present and no relations have changed, however, when running in FMP9, none of the records are viewable. They are in FMP 8.5

Problem 2: I installed it on a brand new Intel based MacBook. I tried to launch the recovered ‘Navigate’ (the same file the Windows machine used) and it gave a ‘FileMaker has unexpectedly quit’ error

Problem 3: I took a copy of one of the larger served files and tried to open it in FMP9 locally. It gave a progress box saying ‘Rebuilding dependencies’ and hung there for a long time.

If anyone has any suggestions, solutions or even similar problems I’d appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks

"All records are present and no relations have changed, however, when running in FMP9, none of the records are viewable. They are in FMP 8.5"

Relationship behaviour has changed with FMP 9.0. Details are in the Read Me file in the FileMaker folder.
