Rest assured that 360Works' products will continue to be updated and supported as technology evolves, and we are excited to be a part of this evolution.

Known Issues with FileMaker 12

Please note that FileMaker Server 12 no longer calls the startup script for FileMaker scheduled scripts. If your scheduled script relies on any plugin functions called in the startup script, you will need to call the startup script from your scheduled script or move the appropriate plugin function calls to the scheduled script.

With FileMaker 12, plugins are installed programmatically using the "Install Plug-In File" script step. 360Works will be releasing a FileMaker 12 compatible AutoUpdate file available here:

The FileMaker 12 Web Publishing Engine does not currently support plugins on 64-bit operating systems. To use plugins with Instant Web Publishing (IWP) or Custom Web Publishing, please ensure that the FileMaker Web Publishing Engine is installed on 32-bit operating systems.
