System requirements

The Plugin requires Mac OS X 10.6 or Windows XP or newer.

FileMaker version 8.5 to 14 is supported with current plugins.

Last version with PowerPC support was version 2.4. This version also supported FileMaker 7 to 8.5 in PPC.

The plugin runs locally on a FileMaker installation or on a server installation. If you use Instant Web Publishing or FileMaker to Go, the plugin still needs to be run on the server, but results can be viewer on browser or iOS devices.
