FileMaker Pro 12 Compatibility
(Page created: April 4th, 2012, updated: June 26th, 2012)
Running plug-ins with FileMaker Pro 12
In general all our plug-ins that worked with FileMaker Pro 11 still work with FileMaker Pro 12. See below for the details on specific plug-in versions.
Running plug-ins with FileMaker Pro 12 and Mac OS X
FileMaker Pro 12 for Mac OS X can only run on Intel Macs. All current Troi Plug-ins are Universal versions, which can run on both Intel and PowerPC Macs. Of course on PowerPC our plug-ins will only run under older versions of FileMaker Pro.
The same plug-in architecture
The plug-in architecture has not changed in FileMaker 12. So there is no need to change any function calls when converting to FileMaker 12 (as compared to the change in plug-in architecture introduced in FileMaker Pro 7).
New: Improved and simple plug-in updating
Plug-in updating has been simplified in FileMaker Pro 12. You now store plug-ins in solution files and install updates from container fields. The Auto Update plug-in is no longer needed. Troi will soon provide an example file to demonstrate this update process in FileMaker Pro 12.
Location of installed plug-ins
When you make use of the new plug-in updating functionality the plug-ins will be installed in the same location as with auto-updated plug-ins from FileMaker Server 9 through 11:
TIP If you use auto-update ànd install plug-ins manually: it is best to only install plug-ins in the folders above and no longer use the Extensions folder next to the FileMaker Pro application itself.
