"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.
Is sharing enabled for FMP 11? Try turning off sharing on FMP 11 and see if you still get that message. I keep Sharing on for FMP 11 and off for FMP 12 on my system, and I get the message any time I open a file that attempts to turn sharing on for FMP 12.
