Troi Serial Plug-in 3.2 released

Troi Plug-ins for FileMaker Pro 12 NOTE Although we have not released a new version of Troi Serial Plug-in, the plug-in (v3.2) works without problems with FileMaker Pro 12 and 13. You can now download example files in the .fmp12 format.

Connect your serial ports!

With this plug-in you can connect to serial ports directly from FileMaker!

We have released Troi Serial Plug-in 3.2. Version 3.2 is a maintenance release, which is compatible with FileMaker 11 through 13 and also fixes some bugs.

What can Troi Serial Plug-in do for you?

With Troi Serial you can connect to multiple serial ports and read and write data to them all directly from FileMaker!

On the version history page you can find the complete list of changes of this and previous versions.

For FileMaker Pro 10 through 13

Troi Serial Plug-in 3 was completely rewritten to be FileMaker Pro 7 native, allowing it to make use of the advanced possibilities, like multiple, self-explanatory parameters and support for Unicode.

Troi Serial Plug-in runs natively with FileMaker Pro 11, 12 and 13 macosx_universal and FileMaker Advanced 11, 12 and 13, but also with FileMaker Pro 8.x through FileMaker Pro 10. The Mac OS X version is a Universal plug-in which runs natively on PowerPC and Intel Macs. The plug-in also runs on Windows.

For those users who are still working with FileMaker 5 through 6, we offer a classic Troi Serial Plug-in version 2.6.

Easy troubleshooting!

Troi Serial Plug-in still has a great debug function, making setup of databases a breeze for our users. You can now troubleshoot by testing the arrival of data at the serial port and you can test script triggering too.

No more quitting

Troi Serial Plug-in 3 can be reinitialized without quitting FileMaker Pro. This makes it possible to accommodate new or different serial ports dynamically, for example when you plug in a USB serial adapter.

And more ...

Another powerful feature is getting the last match string (for example the last line) that was received.

What are the costs?

Troi Serial is a very specialized plug-in, with a limited customer base. To be able to make the conversion viable we had to make the new version of Troi Serial Plug-in more expensive than our other plug-ins.

We currently only sell a cross-platform developer license for US$ 999 which allows you to deploy it with your solution, both on Mac OS X as on Windows.
We currently don't have an upgrade option for single licenses. We only have an upgrade option for developer licenses from US$ 749. Please contact us if you have any questions about this.
