Our filemaker server crashed and so we had to purchase a new server where I installed Filemaker Server 5.5. I copied the database to the new server, shared it to the network but when clients try to access it using Filemaker Pro 5.5 or 6.0, I get the message in the subject. The complete message is "Launch.fp5 is currently in use and could not be opened. The file maybe single-user or the host could not be found in the network."

 

I am able to run the application locally on the server using a filemaker pro but when clients in the network try to access it, that's when I get the message. Any thoughts?

 

Thanks!
