FMPro 6 takes forever to open

Hi,

I've been using FileMaker Pro 6 for many years. For some reason, it now takes more than a minute to open a file.

It stops at "Loading done TCP/IP" (sorry, my client is in French and the original message is "Chargement effectué TCP/IP").

I tried to disable the TCP/IP option, but nothing changes. It rather stops at "Initialization"??? (Initialisation)

I have the same files on another computer, and they open as fast as before.

I tried to uninstall and reinstall the program, but the same issue occurs.

Thanks in advance for your help!

It seems to me that version 6 on the Windows platform got slow when its usual printer went away. If you recently replaced or changed your default printer this *may* be the cause.

Version 7 and up doesn't seem to get so 'attached' to a printer but I have recollections of version 3 thru 6 getting quite slow when the default printer went away.

There were a couple ways to solve the problem as I remember:

1. Uninstall/reinstall Filemaker Pro on the workstation.

2. Delete the printer value stored in the Windows registry. I don't remember the specifics so I recommend option 1.
