    FileMaker Pro cannot start Instant Web Publishing because FileMaker Server or another instance of FileMaker Pro is running on this machine.

    robcostin

      In FileMaker>Sharing>Instant Web Publishing...

       

      I get this error message:

       

       

      “FileMaker Pro cannot start Instant Web Publishing because FileMaker Server or another instance of FileMaker Pro is running on this machine.”

       

      Likewise, in FileMaker>Sharing>FileMaker Network... I get: “FileMaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing files using FileMaker Pro on this computer.”

      This is in FMPA 11.0v4

      Mac OS 10.8.4

       

      This is a new problem. I have successfully developed and tested IWP solutions on this machine in the past.

      Remedies I already tried (and I restarted the computer after each of these):

       

      1. I reinstalled both FMPA-11 and FMPA-12 on this machine. When reinstalling FMPA-12 I chose NOT to install web publishing.

       

      This did not fix it.

       

       

      2. I double-checked my precesses to make sure FM Server is not running on my machine (even though I’m pretty sure I never installed it in the first place.) FM Server is not running.

       

      3. I deleted the file web.prefs from FileMaker/Extensions/Web Support/.

       

      This did not fix it.

       

       

      4. In Mac Sys Prefs>Security>Firewall>Firewall Options I deleted all the individual application firewall settings (ie, iTunes, Skype, Dropbox, along with FileMaker Pro Advanced.)

       

      This did not fix it.

      I really need to get this working again so I can continue development!

       

      Thanks for any suggestions.

       

      Rob
