Problems using IWP in FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced

Post

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
