Installation nightmare!

Your post

     I am trying to install FileMaker Server 13 onto my computer.  After deployment, I get to the Status section that contains two error messages:

     1.  Another copy of FMS is already running with this license.   BUT IT ISN'T!!  I downloaded the FMS program to my other computer, but never installed it.  In any event, I uninstalled everything I could find on the second computer that even mentioned FMS.  And I uninstalled and reinstalled FMS on both computers several times.  No dice - I still can't get past the error message.

     2.  I also get an error message that FMServer_Sample database could not be closed because it is incorrect state: Closed.  I don't have a clue how to deal with this.

     Any ideas how to deal with either or both of these problems?  I've been installing and uninstalling for two days now . . . and just might be losing my mind!
