If I have FM15 server and client on the same machine, client cannot open hosted file without getting error messages such as this:

The problem is the same on Mac OS X (10.11) and Windows (Server 2008). However the file does open.


When trying to import from a file hosted on the same machine, it is worse. The same dialog appears and the import fails altogether.


I have tried this with many files, all of which were converted from .fp7 format, with the same result. Downgrading the server to 14 solves the problem.
