Summary

Instant Web Publishing could not be started

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v4

Operating system version

Windows 7 SP1

Description of the issue

When I click Instant Web Publishing "On" from Sharing/Instant Web Publishing I get the message "FileMaker cannot share files ofver the Web because Instant Web Publishing could not be started."

"All users" are selected for IWP "access to file . . .
"Don't display in IWP homepage" is NOT selected.

I am logged in to the same admin account in which I installed FM.  I'm using Microsoft Firewall and don't see any reason it would be stopping FileMaker or any of its components.

I've checked Forum posts and outside support forums, but haven't found a solution.

Expected result

Instant Web Publishing for currently open files is activated.

Actual result

Pop up window with error message "FileMaker cannot share files ofver the Web because Instant Web Publishing could not be started."

"FileMaker cannot share files ofver the Web because Instant Web Publishing could not be started."

Configuration information
