FTM 2012 Genealogy Reports

Classification: Query
I am a long time user of FTM. I recently made the jump from FTM 2005 to FTM 2012. I had previously bought FTM 2010 and did not like it so I stayed with FTM 2005. Because Ancestry.com no longer supports the old user webpages that were available under FTM 2005, I was forced to go to FTM 2012 in order to display my data online for family members and the public. My problem is this, when I try to create a decendants genealogy report with FTM 2012 it never completes. In FTM 2005, I could complete a 12 generation deep report in 4 or 5 minutes. My database has over 79,000 names. When I try this same report in FTM 2012, it takes 1 minutes to run a 4 generation report (256 pages), 8 minutes for a 5 generation report (584 pages) and the 6 generation reports failed after 38 minutes. I have done all of the fixes that were sent to me by Family Tree Maker support people. I have compacted the file, exported to an extended family chart, and uploaded the data to ancestry.com and then downloaded the data back to me in a new file. I even tried downloading as a gedcom file in order to strip away all the media items and just leave text. Still not able to complete anything more than a 5 generation report. I have a brand new computer with an Intel I5 processor and 4 GB of memory with a 500 GB hard drive, so I know that resources are not the problem. I would love to complete a full geneaology report of my line to share with my family and other researchers. The old report under FTM 2005 would run in the area of 1900 pages. Are there limitations built into FTM 2012 that we were not made aware of? Any help on this matter would be highly appreciated.
