FAQ

Where does your installer put the plugin - I can't see it in the application extensions folder?

Since FileMaker 8 (or was it 8.5?) FileMaker has supported a user write-able directory (as opposed to the Admin only privileges of the Applications area) for plugins to be installed into.

On Mac OS it's:

~/Library/Application Support/FileMaker/FileMaker Pro/14/Extensions/

(where ~ means the current user directory)

In Windows it's:

C:/Users/{User Name}/AppData/Local/FileMaker/FileMaker Pro/14/Extensions/

(On Windows, you may need to show hidden files & folders)

The version and app name will vary corresponding to which version of FileMaker you have installed.

Note that FileMaker gives this precedence over the application extensions directory.
