FileMaker Pro 14 Compatibility
(Page updated: August 7th, 2015)
Running plug-ins with FileMaker Pro 14
FileMaker Pro (Advanced) 14, FileMaker Server (Advanced) 14 and WebDirect are 64-bit processes, for which plug-ins need to be compiled for 64-bit. See below for an overview of all Troi plug-ins and their compatibility with FileMaker Pro 14. If we release new compatible versions of our plug-ins we will provide information here, so please check back for updates.
64-bit plug-ins are needed for FileMaker Pro 14
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 14. So there is no need to change any function calls when converting to FileMaker 14 (as compared to the change in plug-in architecture introduced in FileMaker Pro 7).
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 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.
