FileMaker Server cannot be installed successfully on Windows OS (XP / 7) if the current system time is up-to-date.

However when the system time is changed to - let's say - some date in 2010, it will install and function properly.

This causes a pain for backups as you cannot establish a secure connection with any cloud services if your date is off by a lot.

Does anybody have an idea besides the obvious (upgrading to a new FMS version)?

Much appreciated, Matt
