System requirements

MBS Plugin 8.5 or newer needs MacOS 10.9 or higher. If you need compatibility for MacOS 10.6 to 10.8, please use MBS Plugin 8.4.

For Windows, we recommend Windows 10. The plugin can run on Windows 7 or newer.

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

We support FileMaker 14 to 17 and test those regularly.

Best is to always use latest plugins, even for older FileMaker versions. Minimum recommended version:

FileMaker VersionMinimum MBS Plugin Version
FileMaker Pro 189.3
FileMaker Pro 178.1
FileMaker Pro 167.2
FileMaker Pro 156.0
FileMaker Pro 145.1

If you need MBS Plugin for older FileMaker versions or 32-bit version, please contact us.

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.
