    License Key conflict occurred with user



      License Key conflict occurred with user


           Hi we have the above conflict which does not allow us to network files. We have filemaker pro 13 advanced installed on three machines and this problem occurs when we try to share files with 3  users but when we try between two machines no problems occur. Anyone with an answer out there?

               You have 3 different licencies for FileMaker Advanced? FileMaker will block the networking (fmnet)

               (You can not share on single licence on several machines, one machine one licence)

                 It would appear that you used the same single user license key to install FileMaker on at least two of your computers. That, at least, would be consistent with the error message that you are reporting.
