Here is the situation (please help!):

I am running a mac using system 9.1 (with 256mb of RAM), fmp 5.0 with latest updates, and AOL 5.0. About 75% of the time when I am in AOL mail and I return a fmp database, fmp crashes with type 2 or type 3 error. I thought this was possibly a memory starvation problem so I set fmp's memory in Mac os to 30mb then 45mb then 60mb. Situation the same. I then reinstalled both AOL and FMP (first AOL, then FMP and then vice versa). I ripped out preferences, fonts. etc. No change. If I change the memory allocated, it sometimes works for an afternoon and then back to the same situation. Any advice. This only happened since I change to version 5.0 (and I am told this is the only version that will work correctly with os 9.0)

Help!

Since we see virtually no instability of this type with FM and any other applications AND AOL software is know to cause all sorts of problems, I'd suspect AOL. I'd say your choices are:

1) Talk to AOL tech support (they give the wrong answer about 8 out of 10 times!)

2) Quit using FileMaker

3) Quit using AOL

4) Go back to 8.6 and an older version of AOL.

5) Hope AOL fixes the problem with a new release.

No much good news here. frown.gif
