System requirements

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

The Linux plugin works on 64-bit Linux Servers including those used for FileMaker Cloud.

We support FileMaker 11 to 15 and test those regularly.

FileMaker 7.0 and newer should work on Windows and 8.5 and newer on Mac OS X.

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.
