    FM AdvPro 11 on WinXP Pro sp 2 - IWP not working

      FM AdvPro 11 on WinXP Pro sp 2 - IWP not working

      Description of the issue

      I've recently installed FM AdvPro 11 on a local PC running WinXP Pro SP2.  I go into the 'File' - 'File Sharing' - 'IWP' menu then click on the 'Specify' button to change the default port from 37954 to our normal one for development (which has worked without flaw since version 8.5). When I click OK it takes a long time to return to the IWP dialog box.I cannot access the app via IWP and when I go back into the IWP setup the port has been reset to the original default of 37954 preceded by 6449 (so the url becomes http://192.168.123.123:644937954/).Any ideas on why this may be happening? PS - I tried replying to another thread related to this but got a 404 error. Feel free to move my post to that thread.

            Our Testing Department has sent me the following information:

             

            =============

             

            In Windows Vista and Windows 7, a conflict will occur if you run FileMaker Pro 10 and FileMaker Pro 11 on the same computer with Instant Web Publishing enabled in both versions.  Because both versions of FileMaker Pro use the same port number and the same "web.prefs" configuration file for Instant Web Publishing, you cannot run both versions of FileMaker Pro with Instant Web Publishing enabled at the same time.  The "web.prefs" file for FileMaker Pro 10 does not work with FileMaker Pro 11, and vice-versa.  To avoid conflicts, enable Instant Web Publishing in only one of the versions of FileMaker Pro running on the same computer.  If you must switch between versions of FileMaker Pro with Instant Web Publishing enabled in both, you must use the following instructions to delete the "web.prefs" file each time you switch:

             

            1. Turn off Instant Web Publishing in one of the versions of FileMaker Pro and then exit.

             

            2. Delete the "web.prefs" file in:   Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\FileMaker

             

            3. Start the other version of FileMaker Pro and turn on Instant Web Publishing.

             

            ============

             

            In addition, our Testing department would like to know if your installation of FileMaker Pro 11 was done using an Upgrade License Key or a New License Key.

             

            Let me know if removing the web.prefs file works.
