Troi Serial Plug-in 4.5.1: maintenance release
March 2, 2017 Today we released Troi Serial Plug-in 4.5.1, which fixes a bug in the Serial_Receive function, where in some cases not all data would be returned directly. We also updated the code in several places to make the plug-in more robust and we made several small improvements to the example files. The upgrade to version 4.5.1 is free and recommended for all users of version 4.5.
Troi Serial Plug-in gives FileMaker Pro easy and powerful access to external devices with a serial interface:
The plug-in works with all types of serial ports including those added through an extension card or USB to Serial adaptor. Troi Serial plug-in runs on any machine that is able to run FileMaker Pro 12 or higher. You can also include the plug-in with runtimes made with FileMaker Pro Advanced.

Try Troi Serial Plug-in before you buy
You are free and invited to test the program before you pay. You may also make copies of the original and complete package (including the Read Me file) and distribute it to customers, friends etc. However, you may not distribute a modified or registered version.
What are the costs?
Troi Serial Plug-in is more expensive than our other plug-ins, as it is a very specialized plug-in, with a limited customer base. We currently only sell a cross-platform developer license which allows you to deploy it with your solution, both on Mac OS X and on Windows:
The plug-in uses the 4.5 version of the registration. If you have a license for a previous version, you can buy an upgrade of your license.
Upgrades from previous versions
If you bought a license for Troi Serial 4.0 on or after May 12th, 2015 the upgrade to v4.5.x is FREE! Eligible users have been sent a new registration. Contact us if you have not received yours.
