      Can't open FMP 10 files directly on WinServer 2003 system

      Post

      I like to keep a copy of filemaker installed on my server so that I can shut down Filemaker Server and user FMP to make a quick fix if it's needed.

       

      Filemaker Pro 10 is successfully installed on this machine.

       

      If I launch the Filemaker Pro application, I am able to find and open a file successfully.

       

      If I double-click a database file, I get a dialog box that is undecipherable with a progress bar. It appears to be an Installer dialog, but I see boxes where I should see text. If I wait, I get a dialog box that I can read that says:

      "The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available."

       

      When I click cancel I get another unreadible dialog with "1706." and "10.  " as the only characters that are recongnizable except for the OK on the OK button.

       

      Any idea why this is happening?
