    Problems using IWP in FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced



      Problems using IWP in FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced


      I have seen a number of people with problems opening IWP, and I also have a problem with this.


      I get the following message:

      "FileMaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing files using FileMaker Pro on this computer"


      I am running FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced

      The OS is MacOS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

      I have no other instance of FileMaker running.

      I have been using FileMaker since version 1.3 (with gaps at various points)

      I have a lot of networking experience (I used to teach Advanced Cisco courses)

      I am not a computer expert, but I generally know my way around them.


      but I don't know how to solve this one.


      Anyone got any suggestions. I would rather not remove and re-install Filemaker if possible.

      I am considering upgrading to 11, but this is seriously worrying me. I need to be able to see that IWP works before I commit to an upgrade
