FileMaker 14 and Windows 10

Developers may be interested to learn how the new release of Windows 10 and FileMaker 14 may affect them. While believed to be correct, this information may be incomplete and subject to change. Contact the FileMaker company directly for current information.

  • FileMaker 13 was not designed for Windows 10. FileMaker 14 does not fully support Windows 10 at the time it was released.

  • FileMaker 14 on Mac has an option to output either 32-bit or 64-bit solutions. Since the Mac plugin from Excel Software is Universal (includes both 32-bit and 64-bit software) it will likely work with either option. It also supports earlier versions of FileMaker.

  • FileMaker 14 on Windows includes separate 32-bit and 64-bit installers. Since our Windows FM plugin is 32-bit (as are most FM plugins), you must install the 32-bit version of FM. The runtime solution will then run on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows computers. You will likely need a future update from FileMaker to be fully compatible with Windows 10.

  • In the future, Excel Software may produce a 64-bit FileMaker plugin for use with the 64-bit version of FileMaker 14. Any solutions you produce with that environment would only run on 64-bit Windows computers and may not support older versions of Windows.
