24U Plug-In AutoInstaller removes your pain from using plug-ins in a multi-user environment. This utility simply automates installation, registration, and updates of all the plug-ins you use in your multi-user FileMaker Pro solutions. It comes pre-configured for 24U FileMaker Pro plug-ins, but it can be used for other 3rd party plug-ins as well.
No more manual installation of plug-ins on client machines, no more complicated scripting for every single plug-in to be auto-updated from server. 24U Plug-In AutoInstaller will update, install, and register all the plug-ins your solution requires. The only thing you have to do is to perform a single external script.

"It [AutoInstaller] has been a tremendous help to me, and solved problems that I couldn't find answers to anywhere else. I had already read the FMP inc docs for auto-updating over & over, but it just wasn't working... I've also emailed another plug-in company that was unable to explain the auto-update procedure. I told them that 24U had a really great example of how auto-update ought to be explained and advised that they take a good look at it, or just link to it from their support section."
