FileMaker Pro 8.5 Compatibility
(Page updated: July 10th, 2007)
Running plug-ins with FileMaker Pro 8.5 and Windows
In general all our plug-ins that worked with FileMaker 8 still work with FileMaker Pro 8.5 and Windows. See below for the details on specific plug-ins.
Running plug-ins with FileMaker Pro 8.5 and Mac OS X
FileMaker Pro 8.5 for Mac OS X is a Universal Application and can run natively on
PowerPC and Intel Macintoshes. However, when FileMaker is launched on Intel Macs, it
only loads Universal plug-ins. It does not load PowerPC plug-ins. Therefore all
plug-ins need to be converted to Universal plug-ins.
Troi has converted its main plug-ins to these Universal versions.
The same plug-in architecture
Note that the plug-in architecture has not changed in FileMaker 8.5. So there is no need to change any function calls when converting to FileMaker 8.5 (as compared to the change in plug-in architecture introduced in FileMaker Pro 7).
