Do any of the updates for FileMaker 5.5 apply to 5.5 Unlimited?

Should I use the FileMaker Pro 5.5v2 updater on my FileMaker 5.5 Unlimited? Should I use the FileMaker Pro 5.5v3 Web Companion updater on my FileMaker Pro 5.5 Unlimited Web Companion?

I'm attempting to run FileMaker Pro 5.5 Unlimited on Windows 2000 Professional. My server is a G4 running OSX (10.0.4 client) with FileMaker Server 5.5

I'm experiencing many problems. My system works great and has for about a year now with FileMaker Server 5.5 on the server and FileMaker 5 Unlimited on my Windows 2000 machine. As soon as I update the Unlimited 5 to 5.5 on the Windows 2000 machine, Unlimited just stops working every few hours.

I have spent several hours rebuilding older data bases to see if that would solve the problem but it made no difference.

At this point, I put FileMaker 5 Unlimited back on my Windows 2000 machine until I can find a solution.

Anyone have any solutions, please reply.

      We have a small web site using WebStar 4.3 and Filemaker 5 unlimited/web companion with a few custom published web pages for searching for classes in a catalog.
      For some reason, Filemaker unexpectedly and seemingly at random, "disappears". IE it does not show up in the finder, but when I try to restart it I get the "too many licensed users" (we have only one license for unlimited) and I have to restart the machine.
      I have enabled the error logs to see what pages are being used when it crashes, and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it. No consistent searches being performed. The interval between crashes ranges from a few hours to a few days-- it doesn't seem to be dependent on load either, in that it happens sometimes with almost no accesses and at other times after a long period of high access.
      This is driving me crazy! I have: run tech tool pro and cleaned/scanned/defragged the disk, moved from os 8.6 to 9.0x, tried on two completely different machines (one G3, another G4), tried opening the db's locally and from a Filemaker 5 Server machine, disabled all plugins that were not necessary for the operation.
      I am running out of options. This is a pretty stock setup and I have to believe that someone out there has experienced similar problems.

      After some time (seems time is random) Filemaker will generate an error of "Database Not Open" when users try to connect to the web front-end I have created (when, in fact, when I look at the console, FMP is maximized and running-all DBs ARE open, I can perform things on the open DBs from within FMP itself). I'm running Filemaker 5.0V3 (unl) and web connector 5.0V6 under Win2kpro.
      Has anyone seen this before? Once any user gets this error, the web front-end is useless (for everyone) until I restart Filemaker. This is a major concern! Please Help
      Addition: It appears that whenevr this happens this appears in the web connector error log: [28/Dec/2000:15:58:28 -0500] HTTP session disconnected.
      Any ideas?
