Hi all,

I don't have access to the maker.ini file in the FrameMaker installation. How can I then register FDK clients?

I plan to put my FDK clients in a fminit structure in my document folder.

Will a maker.ini file in the same folder also be run at startup?

Best Regards,

Gunnar Eldevik

There is also a maker.ini file in

C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\FrameMaker\<VersionNumber>

where <UserName> is your Windows login name and <VersionNumber> is the FrameMaker version number (13 for 2015; 14 for 2017; 15 for 2019).

There is also a way to configure an FDK Client so that it loads automatically without an entry in the maker.ini file if it is in the fminit/Plugins folder. I don't remember how to do it, but it is in the FDK docs somewhere.

Autoregister of FDK Clients is discribed here: (page 36)

https://help.adobe.com/en_US/framemaker/pdfs/fdkprogrammerguide.pdf?page=36

Plugin is put to fminit/Plugins and Registers automatically if VERSIONINFO in res-file is set correctly.

For Installation you Need Rights to %programfiles%

In FM8 on Solaris the fminit folder was read  both in the FM installation  and also in an fminit structure places in the same folder as the FM book. Is this also the case with the current versions on Window, meaning that I might put my plugins under my  ...\document\fminit\Plugin folder?

Best Regards,
