Summary

.fp7 file is already open

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

3

Operating system version

Windows Server 2008 R2

Description of the issue

We were using filemaker on our server just fine, then recently we were asked to update the version. It's been a little while and as far as I know everything has been working fine. Now whenever we try to open our database it says the .fp7 file is currently in use. If the file is shared , you can use the Open Remote command top open the file on the network. I have verified with all of the users and as far as I can tell all instances of it are closed. Any ideas on what I can do?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Every time you open filemaker and try to open the database it gives an error.
