"FileMaker cannot share files because . . . "

"FileMaker cannot share files because . . . "


After installing FMP12 I get this error message every time I open a new or converted dB:

"FileMaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing files using FileMaker Pro on this computer."

In researching this issue, it seems this error message was common 3-4 years ago, but on Windows machines.   I'm on an iMac.

Does anyone recall what the fix is for this?  FMP11 is still on the machine, and a test verion of FMS was there a few months ago, but is off now.
