We have 2 desktops, each running Windows 7 - one 64 bit with 8 GB memory, the other 32 bit with 4 GB.
FTM 2012 shuts down frequently - not just once or twice a week more like 3-5 time a day on both machines.
The trees currently experiencing this issue are 15,065 individuals on the 64 bit W7 machine and a brand new tree on the 32 bit machine with just over 100 people.
The product is just plain garbage and truly a memory hog and doesn't release memory - just keeps eating away until there is nothing left and shuts down - no warning - on both machines with different size trees.
ANY IDEAS ANCESTRY - MAYBE YOU CAN DIVERT SOME OF THE SAVINGS FROM DUMPING OLD SEARCH INTO MAKING A BETTER PRODUCT
