FileMaker Pro 15 Compatibility
(Page updated: July 5th, 2016)
Running plug-ins with FileMaker Pro 15
In general all our plug-ins that worked with FileMaker Pro 14 still work with FileMaker Pro 15. However, as FileMaker Pro 15 can run plug-ins in a background thread, plug-ins need to be rewritten for this to work properly. See below for an overview of all Troi plug-ins and their compatibility with FileMaker Pro 15.
64-bit plug-ins are needed for FileMaker Pro 15
With FileMaker Pro 15 (as with FileMaker Pro 14) you can only use plug-ins that are compiled for 64-bit. On Windows 64-bit plug-ins have a different extension: fmx64. In the download of a 64-bit compatible plug-in you will find this extra copy of the plug-in.
Plug-ins for OS X can be universal and the extension is always the same: fmplugin. A universal plug-in is a single plug-in that will run on a 32-bit process as well as on 64-bit process. You can not easily see if an OS X plug-in is 64-bit compatible. We have created a simple dropper app called "Troi Architecture Check" to determine for which architectures a plug-in is compiled. You can download the app here.
The same plug-in architecture
The plug-in architecture has not changed in FileMaker 15. So there is no need to change any function calls when converting to FileMaker 15.
Simple plug-in updating
Plug-in updating has been simplified in FileMaker Pro 12 and later. You now store plug-ins in solution files and install updates from container fields. The Auto Update plug-in is no longer needed. All new versions of Troi plug-ins provide an example file to demonstrate this update process in FileMaker Pro 12 and later.
Location of installed plug-ins
When you make use of the new plug-in updating functionality the plug-ins will be installed in this location:
With FileMaker Pro Advanced 15:
TIP If you 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.
