Troi Automatisering has released Troi Activator Plug-in 3.5 (www.troi.com/software/activatorplugin.html) for FileMaker Pro 12. It's a tool for triggering scripts across the network, even over the Internet.
Troi Activator Plug-in 3.5 has the following new features and fixes:
° Added two new functions, which can shutdown and restart the computer.
° The Actr_Sleep function now works on Mac and Windows. Also added a new switch "-sleepnow" to put the computer to sleep directly.
° Extended the Upload Server functionality to be able to handle only text: you no longer need to include an image in your upload.
° The Actr_GetIPAddress function can now return the IPv6 address.
° Completely rewrote the plug-in for 64 bit. The plug-in now runs as a 64-bit plug-in under Custom web publishing under FileMaker Pro 12 on Mac OS X.
° Rewrote the plug-in to prevent a crashing bug, which could occur when Troi Activator Plug-in was installed in two separate places.
° Fixed a problem where the plug-in would not correctly load when running as a server-side plug-in or as a web-side plug-in under FileMaker Server 12.
° Improved and updated the example files and updated the User Guide to reflect the new functionality.
