Due to a special customer requirements situation, I'm in a position where I will have to run two old (rather, one old and one ancient) FileMaker Server instances -- 5.5 and 9.
If at all possible, I'd like to run both of those on one(!) Windows XP Pro machine.
Setting aside the security implications (which can be controlled rather reliably in this setting) - is it possible to run FMS 5.5 and 9 on one machine?
Will they both work on Windows XP Pro?
FileMaker states that FMS 5.5 on XP is not "supported", but -- will it work in practice? 5.5 is EOL'd anyway and I need to keep this setup running for a while longer, until the replacement can be put into service.
(Reasoning for doing a new setup with this: They databases have been served from two Macs that will be consolidated into windows VM(s) - one if at all possible.)
