Thank you for your post.
First, there is no expiration date built into the TechNet version of FileMaker Server 9. It is only limited by the number of users.
With that said, something has obviously changed, so we need to determine what it is.
The trouble-shooting you have done is exactly what I would have done. That is, uninstall and reinstall, run Java 6 update 7, etc.
Are you able to install on a non-virtual machine? If so, do you get the same problems? I'm trying to remove as many variables possible.
You may want to also post this on TechNet, since you have a larger number of developers who have encountered a similar set up.
Please keep us posted if you find a solution.

this i already have done. Deinstalled from the virtual machine, reinstalled on my old back up development machine, and redirected all requests to it. Now i am waiting the three weeks to see what happens. More news in three weeks ;-)
I also posted the case on the german filemaker forum, and on fmforums.com, too. No useable response untill now.
The next steps i plan to do ... yelling hooray after four weeks, if nothing happens, and/or making a brand new virtual machine to see what happens in three weeks.
You say i can post on technet? *That* is new to me. Of course i will post it there, too.
greetings from germany
If you downloaded the developer version of FileMaker Server, then I'm assuming you are a TechNet member, and you should be able to post directly to TechTalk.
