Filemaker Pro 5 issue w/ sharing


The error message received is "... is currently in use and could not be opened. The file is single-user, or the host could not be found in the network." This happens on two different client pcs, with no 3rd party firewalls, and XP firewalls disabled (host is same). From what I've found on Google, you can go to file from the host pc, and select sharing and setup sharing that way. The problem here is that the custom .fp5 file does not enable that feature; it's grayed out. Could I somehow use Filemaker Server 5 for sharing this? Any ideas, suggestions? Thanks.
