I solved my FM 12 server problem by uninstalling FM 12 server and installing FM 13 server instead.
This however created a new problem. - The server is and has been running on the same machine as a Microsoft express SQL Database which seems to be using web services for some of it's functionality.
The FM 13 server installation process completely "monopolized" the IIS not allowing the SQL system access after the install.
What would I need to do during installation to prevent this?
After trying to start the SQL client on that machine I am able to get the startup page from myip:16000 but when I click the button to start the console I get a spinning wheel and nothing happens.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I should be looking for to fix that?
I was thinking whether port 16001 needs to be accessible for the console to download or if there is something else I need to look into?
