Summary

Can I have FileMaker Pro 11 and FileMaker Server 11 both install in one computer?

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

11

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.6.8

Description of the issue

I have been unable to share files when I have both the FileMaker Pro and the FileMaker Server install in the same computer. Every time I open a file with both of them install, I receive the following dialog box:

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

When I uninstall the FileMaker  Server and I reopen a file, there's no error.

I am thinking I didn't install the FileMaker Server correctly because according to the guides, it is possible to have both FileMaker Pro and the FileMaker Server install..

Is there any setting I need to change when installing the server so I don't get this error ?
