FM11 - Filemaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing

Post

Im having a problem on a clients machine using Filemaker Pro 11 

The system is running Windows Vista SP2

 

This is the first time I have come across the "Filemaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing" issue with Filemaker 11..

 

I have tried the usual FM9 / 10 workarounds such as replacing the server.pem file, 

disabling file sharing / firewalls / TCP IP V6 to no avail.

 

I have also re-installed FM11, clearing out all registry entries and any left over files (if I found them all that is)

 

Im certainly no expert when it comes to port usage in windows, however when I run (via command prompt)  

Netstat -aon  port 5003 is listed alongside a process ID for a windows service (shown below)

 

 

On my machine, 5003 is listed against Filemaker's Process ID, with filemaker closed.. its simply not listed

Prior to the above screenshot, 5003 was listed against AeLookupSvc (Application Experience) So disabled this temporarily and rebooted...

 

Like I say, im no expert on the subject, Im not 100% sure if that means the port is in use or not, but I cannot enable sharing on this particular machine.

 

Any ideas are appreciated.
