Windows Plug-in Installation
« on: May 21, 2009, 11:04:51 AM »
Please follow these steps to install a FileMaker plug-in on your Windows machine:

1) Download the latest plug-in from Productive Computing. Make sure that you unzip the contents of the download before moving to the next step. Typically this does not happen automatically and you will need to use a program such as Winzip or right click the download, select "Extract all files" and use the Windows Extraction Wizard.

2) Quit FileMaker Pro completely.
3) Locate the plug-in in your download which can be found in a folder called “Plug-in”. The actual plug-in will have a will have a “.fmx” extension.

4) Copy the actual plug-in and paste the plug-in in the Extensions folder which is inside the FileMaker Program folder. This is normally located here: C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro 10\Extensions

5) Start FileMaker. Confirm that the plug-in has been successfully installed by navigating to “Preferences” in FileMaker Pro and selecting the “Plug-ins” Tab.  There you should see the plug-in listed with a corresponding check box. This indicates that you have successfully installed the plug-in.

You will next need to register the plug-in before use.
