Windows 7 and filemaker server 11
I am trying to run FileMaker 11 Server on a Windows 7 Professional Dell Desktop. The installation of the server and admin console worked fine. I also imported a copy of my database from my FM10 Server box. I installed the FileMaker 11 client on the same Windows 7 box as the server and was able to access the startup scripts.
However, when I install the FileMaker 11 client on a different machine, I can see the FileMaker Server 11 instance, but I cannot see the startup scripts. I have shared the Filemaker folder and can see the database through the map network drive function. So it looks like the sharing is working ok.
I am eager to get this Filemaker server installation going as it is holding up an enterprise server upgrade until I can get it relocated.
All suggestions welcome.
Please do not share the folder where the files reside. This is neither necessary nor safe.
Are you accessing the shared file via Open Remote on the client machine?
Did you open the file with filemaker pro (not server) and use sharing to set up the file to be shared over the network?
