Other Troi Plug-ins for FileMaker Pro 8.5 and Intel Macs

natively on PowerPC and Intel Macintoshes. However, when FileMaker is
launched on Intel Macs, it only loads Universal plug-ins. It does not
load PowerPC plug-ins. Therefore all plug-ins need to be converted to
Universal plug-ins. Troi has already released these other new

the same or other computers.
