I have a temporary project which requires my running FileMaker Pro 6 on a Server 2003 Terminal Server.

I know that I need to have a Volume License in order for multiple copies of FMP to run.

I looked on eBay, but I don't know of any place that might have old licenses for sale.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Larry, in some cases FileMaker has been willing to give a "downgrade" license for an older version of FileMaker when you purchase the current version, so you could buy however many FM 13 licenses you need (concurrent users under TS) and then install 6. However, given that 6 - and FM Server 5.5 - came out around 2002 they may not longer be setup to generate License keys for that version though they might have some around. I would suggest calling their volume license number 800-725-2747 and speaking to one of the reps there.

Filemaker will not offer a downgrade for this, and I can't find any sources to purchase this.
