FM Server v5.5 on Windows XP Pro?
Posted on 2004-09-23
I was wondering if it was possible to run FileMaker server version 5.5
on Windows XP professional? I work for a nonprofit with about eight
really old computers running FileMaker version 5.5. We really want to
centralize our database but we don't have the money to purchase new
computers so there's no way we can upgrade to FileMaker version 7. Of
course, we don't have much money for the server computer either so I'm
trying to spec out something which will offer passable performance
(most of us have 200 MHz Pentium I computers so I don't think the
performance bottleneck will be the server!)
Here is the computer I was planning on purchasing:
AMD Athlon 2800+
512 MB RAM
40 GB 7200 rpm hard drive
Windows XP professional
10/100/1000 Ethernet NIC
will this work?
Thanks for all your help!
