I have FMS 17 on a Windows Server that is not all that fast for my dev env.
Has anyone else noticed that when you get to the "Start Database Server" button, and click it, there is no indication that it's starting if your server is slow? Same goes for the "Stop Database Server" inside the admin. I mean, the button disappears for a split second, like a normal click would, but there is no indicating text or status bar, so you wonder if it is starting. You can keep clicking the button, but how do we know it is starting without viewing the OS logs?
