Are you using the 64 bit version of windows 7? I've had some troubles getting that to work with older versions of filemaker before, which haven't liked living in the x86 apps folder for whatever reason.
If you have access to VirtualPC, VMware or something else, you might want to have a downgraded machine running your server inside.
Remember filemaker 10 is now over 4 years old, support is going to be limited for the latest windows updates.
Note that Windows 7 is not even listed on there as compatible.
Also note this:
- Web server: IIS 7.0 (Native Mode), IIS 6.0 (Windows Server 2003 only)
What version of IIS did you have?
I am using the 32bit Windows with IIS 6.1. I have seen later posts that say FMSA 10 will work on Windows 7 Professional and Enterprise as it is similar to Vista.
I'm going to guess it is a java issue. What version of java do you have active on that machine?
Java Standard 6 update 7 (build 1.6.0_07-b06)
It looks as though FMSA 10 and Windows 7 will never get along. I need to develop on the fp7 platform for a client. Does anyone have a link to download Server 11 Advanced? I have the developer's license, but not the software.
I can't find an active page for server 11 (just pro 11) for getting a trial.
I would contact filemaker support and have them generate a new download link for you:
They've been able to get me download links for past versions before by verifying my license key.
