Hello,
We have upgraded most of our clients to Windows 7 32 bits. We don't have a filemaker server, but have the database being shared using a windows XP machine. Our windows Xp computers can access the sahred database without any issues. On Windows 7 clients, after going to Open-Remote, the ip address of the shared database comes up, but no database files are displayed. When I manually type it in the path, it is not able to find it and gives an error.
I have one Windows 7 Machine that works just fine. I have no idea what the problem is. I even turned off the firewall on Win7 machines and that did not do it.

Ok , I figured this out. On the Windows XP machine that is hosting the database, I copied the server.pem file in the Filmaker folder uder program files. Next, I replaced the server.pem on the Win 7 computers with the server.pem file on the Windows 7 machines. I was able to see the database right after that.
