Summary

Files not visible when running FM Server 11 under Windows 7 Pro

Version

FileMaker Server 11

Operating system version

Windows 7 Pro

Description of the issue

FM server installs and launches without issue.  Any database files placed in the database directory open.  However, the FM Server sample file, any FM files created by FMP on the server, or functional databases moved from a different server and placed in the database folder are not visible to workstation computers running FMP 11.  The server is listed in the Open Remote window, but no hosted files are listed.  If the FMS is stopped and files in the database folder are instead opened with FMP on the server, then the files are listed and available to all workstations in the Open Remote window. So you can host solutions on the Server by running them under FMP, but not when opened using FMS on the same Windows 7 Pro computer.

Is this a WIndows 7 file permission issue by chance?  Reloading FM Server did not resolve the issue.
