Alternatives to Troi File

Recommended Posts

Hello friends

My trial period using the Troi File plug in has expired and I am considering buying it. But before I do, I was wondering if there was a way to get multiple images (or any file, for that matter) into FM? I really like the File plugin, but all I really need to do is import multiple images into fm at one time.

I have 5.5 on Mac/Win platforms. Thanks everyone.

You could upgrade to FileMaker 6.0 but you will not have the flexiability that Troi File Provides.

Thanks for the reply.

The funny thing is that I bought FM Dev 5.5 about 1 and 1/2 months before 6 came out (paid $499).

I would need only 2 Troi licenses, so I guess I will do that. Thanks

You might check, the license is mostly by the machine. If you have 7 version of FM on one machine (like I do) you don't usually need seven licenses.

If your main interest is importing multiple images, an alternative would be DialogMagic from New Millennium Communications:

Thanks for the link, Ray. Although the DialogMagic plugin looks helpful, I am already familiar with Troi File and it is cheaper per license.

Not a problem, Ken, just thought I'd make the suggestion, as you were looking for alternatives...

BTW, if you were in the market for an x-plat developer license, rather than per-machine licenses, the pricing structures are such that DialogMagic is in fact cheaper.

Cheers,
