Did you get it to work? I want to try and do it on SBS 08 or windows server '08 R2. Would appreciate to hear how it went for you.
I got it to work without problems on Windows 2008 Server (on an x64 platform)
It seems that all dependencies (.dll) are included / there are none ..
The server is a quite small piece of sw .. 5 MB in the msi
it uses just up to 50 mb of RAM but is quite drive intensive
It works well so far .. over a month without an issue (with a backup solution etc)
Cool, thanks for your reply. That should save some money in the upgrade.
Check your network protocol settings on the client computers. Unlike recent versions, Filemaker 5.5 supported several different network protocols. Don't know if the new server supports the older protocols (other than TCP/IP) and if you, by any chance, are using one of the other protocols, that might be the issue.
