  • macOS 10.12 – 10.15
  • FileMaker Client versions 16 – 19
  • FileMaker Server versions 16 – 19 (including PSoS, script schedules, CWP, WebDirect)

If using earlier versions of FileMaker or macOS, version bBox 0.85 may still be downloaded. Starting with version 0.90, bBox is 64-bit only.

Using Python and SSL based connections will require High Sierra (macOS 10.13) or better. Some functions or script steps may not work server-side, check the function documentation for details.

Plug-in Installation (Client)

The demo file will install the plug-in if needed on both client and server (plug-in installation must be enabled on server).

You can install manually for an individual user by starting at their home directory, and putting it in:
Library/Application Support/FileMaker/{version name}/{version number}

There is a debug version of the plug-in in DEBUG folder, which may be helpful for debugging some issues. It will send extra output to the system log, which you can view using the Console application in /Applications/Utilities.

Plug-in Installation (Server)

bBox is fully server-side compliant, although running server-side does put limitations on some functions (esp. AppleScript) that typically work with a logged in user. For details on installing a server-side plug-in:

  • for FMS 15 see
  • for FMS 16 see

Install Plug-In File Script Step (Client & Server)

To use with either a client or server side script, simply drag the bBox plug-in file into a container field, and then add the Install Plug-In File script step to your system’s initialization script.

You should first check for a previous install so that you aren’t needlessly re-installing the plug-in each time. Testing for a result of “?” from the bBox_Version function would be a good start.

Also, when using this script step server-side, the last installed version is the version used by all scripts run on that system, so you may need to be more careful about version dependency issues on systems utilizing server-side scripts.

Demo File Installation

The FileMaker demo file can’t be run from a read-only location (e.g., a disk image), so before using it you’ll need to copy the demo file to somewhere like your Desktop where you have write access. It can also be hosted on FileMaker Server.

The demo file will install (and possibly update) the installed version of the bBox plug-in.
