FileMaker Pro 9.0 Shared File Message
Posted on 2009-05-20
When a user tries to access a FMP 9.0 DB from a known working shortcut on her desktop, the FMP application opens and then she sees the following message:
"Name of Database" is a shared file. Opening a shared file directly from a remote volume will reduce performance and can affect reliability. You should instead share the file by opening with FileMaker on the same computer where the file is stored on disk.
