You may want to examine this thread: http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/3d890e6f77

I would first try disabling ipv6, and confirm you don't have server running on the same PC. I had problems with ipv6, but only with FMP9.

The Windows File Sharing settings will not impact upon Filemaker's ability to host databases; the database is not shared through Windows file sharing. I would advise against sharing the databases folder, because you don't want users double clicking databases to load them.

I could not figure out what they meant by or yourself.. what or how to disable B)?

Went to network connections,,, properties

couldn't find any mention of or show anything stating Ipv6 ?? or I am not in the right place

my own little blog with this anoying problem

I just keep hitting the OK everytime i get this buggy error.. I was stepping through some code today.. in a if statement, on a set Var command.. and the Same Share happened BUT WAS DIFFERENT compared to a few moments ago that it did not error was I Popped up my Data Viewer.. had only 6 vars didplayed.. (i wasn't in any deep loops or complicated ladder of code or processing any thing..

As said.. I spent $ took my XP to another tech who was pretty smart..found nothing wierd on my system...

EXCEPT i keep getting bugged by MS updates..

Is it that MS has finally caught up with this Filemaker 9 version?
