FM Pro 5 for Windows 7 - works on one computer, not another

Post

Problem: Need to make FileMaker Pro 5 work for on Windows 7. I successfully installed it on a Dell Inspiron with Windows 7 and am using it on a regular basis (and another laptop running windows 7, but dont recall brand or model at the moment). Now I have a Gateway desktop running Windows 7,  and Filemaker 5 won't install (incompatible) and Filemaker 11 won't see the files on the server.

 

I am asking for any/all work arounds at this point.

 

Yes, in a perfect world, I could shut down operations and just upgrade to FileMaker Pro 11 with new OSs all at once, but in the meantime I just have to keep people going with what we have, which is a conglomerate of NT/XP/Vista/7.
