    File sharing with FM 9

      Summary

      File sharing with FM 9

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      9.0v3

      Operating system version

      MacOS 10.8.4

      Description of the issue

      We've recently migrated all our local network from Windows to Apple. We now work with Mountain Lion 10.8.4
      I want to move a solution we have in Filemaker. The licenses we have are version 9.0v3.
      We have one license working as a host for the files in the host and the other four in terminals accessing the files via Open Remote.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      When activating Network Sharing in the host, I get an error: "FileMaker can not share files because another user is sharing files with FileMaker Pro on this computer."
      There wasn't any other installation in the server and I even tried without LAN or internet connection.
      I would like to know if there is any solution to work with version 9 (without upgrading).
      Thanks for the help

      Actual result

      Appart from the message in the host, the rest of computers can't obviously see the shared files

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      FileMaker can not share files because another user is sharing files with FileMaker Pro on this computer.

      Workaround

      I've tested with version 11 (trial) and appears to work fine..
